Chelsea tried to sign Napoli’s Kalidou koulibaly last summer, but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis prevented the deal from happening, and Koulibaly was glued to the Italian club.
The Senegal international featured in a 1-1 friendly draw played with Nigeria in London on Thursday night, and revealed after the game that he’d love to play in the Premier League.
When asked if he may play in London again after appearing for Senegal against Nigeria in a friendly at Barnet, Koulibaly told talkSPORT‘s Ian Abrahams: “It would make me happy to come and play here, but I now I have to go to Napoli.
“In the future you never know. Now I concentrate on my club and we will see next season what I have to do.
“I think I will stay in Napoli but you never know. I can’t talk about it now. We will see.”
