Lampard gets his answer as defensive superstar Koulibaly makes big January decision about possible Chelsea move!
Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly has decided that he wants to stay at Napoli this transfer window.
We are planning for potential new signings in this transfer window, as the deadline approaches and And one name that will be high up on the shopping list of the boss is that of Kouliably, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, especially as we need to add some much needed experfience to that very young defensive back-line
However, reports on THE SUN WEBSITE have claimed that he has decided that he will not leave Napoli this month and would much rather wait until the summer transfer window.
Strong, classy and composed, the 28-year-old is rightly considered world-class and would be a major statement of intent from Lampard in his quest to get the club back challenging for more than a top four spot.
If he is to sign big time players, then he should start with the signing of Koulibaly as he could be the leader that the club are seeking, especially as they need to add a bit more experience to that back-line.
So even though we will not be seeing the powerhouse make the big money move to the Bridge this month, we will have a much better chance to trying to secure a deal for the defender in the summer.
Many believe that Virgil Van Dijk is the only player that is better than Koulibaly, so if Lampard does have the money, I would love to see this man arrive for around the £100 m illion mark.
It is a lot of money but he could well be worth it.
