Napoli are open to selling Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly, according to their club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
We have been in the transfer headlines alot of the past few months as all indications suggest that boss Frank Lampard is keen to delve into that transfer kitty in the summer and improve his back-line.
And one name that is high up on the shopping list of the club is that of Kouliably, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe.
It has been reported on many occasions that Napoli do not want to sell one of their biggest players and would rather keep him at the club, that is how much they reportedly are desperate to keep him at the club.
However, De Laurantis has opened up and announced that he would consider letting Koulibaly leave the club, if the asking price was met this transfer window.
The Napoli president told Corriere Dello Sport: ” I would think about it and it is probable that they would leave, always if their will was to leave.
“I don’t even consider an offer of €60m (£55m/$68m). I am firm on that. If I wanted to win the Scudetto at any cost today I would find myself with three, four hundred million in debt.
“I look around and see companies at 500, 600 million, less than a billion. I don’t owe anyone a sh*t.”
At the end of the day, Koulibaly would be a world class signing for us to make and one that would be very welcome at the club.
