Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed Kalidou Koulibaly will leave for the right price this summer, and Chelsea should forget about Declan Rice and make a move..
Koulibaly has firmly established himself as one of the very best centre-backs over in Italy over the past few seasons and his performances have led to rumours that he is coming to the Premier League
The 29-year-old defender has been linked with big-money moves to Chelsea for months now, But Frank Lampard has not been making any moves for Koulibaly as the asking price for the defender has been sky high
It is believed that weare keen to try and make a move to try and bring Rice to the club, although is massive asking price is also an issues for the club as the board reportedly dont believe in his abilit.
De Laurentiis recently confirmed Kalidou Koulibaly will leave for the right price this summer, with reports suggesting that he would now take £60 million for the powerhouse, he told Canale 21: “Koulibaly and [Napoli striker Arkadiusz] Milik are both on their way out, transfer market permitting.
“So, if the transfer market allows us to sell these two excellent players, we will know how to replace them.
“If not, then we’ll discuss it again next year.”
Look, we have just signed the brilliant Thiago Silva, that could be the best signing for the club this summer, But Koulibaly is a player that is regarded as one of the very best in the business right now.
So if we are looking for a defender that could play for the club for the four or five seasons, then spending £60 million on Koulibaly would surely make them more solid and stop the need to splash the cash on Rice
