Chelsea close in on Koulibaly

Chelsea are closing in on a £34m deal to sign Napoli

centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.

Sportitalia – as reported by The Sun – claim that new

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is prepared to splash the

cash on the defender to shore up his rearguard options

at Stamford Bridge.
The same report claims that Chelsea have been keeping

tabs on the Senegal international for some time but are

now closing in on a transfer deal to sign the 25-year-

old.

Chelsea have been linked with a host of players as

Conte prepares for his first season in charge at

Stamford Bridge.

However, despite all of the speculation, the west London

club have thus far only signed striker Michy Batshuayi

from Marseille.
Conte is set to officially take over at Chelsea next week

after the conclusion of Euro 2016 following his

appointment as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor at

Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea endured a disastrous campaign last season as

they finished 10th in the Premier League table with

their title defence in tatters.
