Exclusive: Napoli tell Chelsea Koulibaly price-tag

Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly is a long time target of Chelsea and his performances in the current campaign confirm the Senegalese centre-back is one of the best defenders in Europe at the moment.

Napoli are the Serie A table leaders with eight games won out of eight and they are set to face second-placed Inter this coming Saturday.

‚ÄčKoulibaly hasn’t missed one single minute in the current campaign. He has 12 appearances in 12 games, 1080 minutes played already and two goals scored.

He is one of the cornerstones of this Napoli side. Koulibaly is becoming a complete defender. Strong in the one against one, good with the ball at his feet and almost impossible to beat with headers.

Chelsea made several attempts to sign him last summer but Napoli rejected every approach of the Blues.

The Premier League giants will make a new attempt at the end of the season when Napoli will demand somewhere in the region of € 60/70 million to sell their rock-sold defender.

Napoli are not open to sell but they could decide to do so if they win the Serie A title this season. If Koulibaly keeps this amazing level, Napoli have many chances to make their dream come true.
