Napoli to make Kalidou Koulibaly available for a move to the Premier League as £70 million Chelsea talk rumbles on

Napoli will make Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly available for a move to the Premier League when they finalise a £70m deal for Lille forward Victor Osimhen,

There have been some reports in the media suggesting that Chelsea are planning for potential new signings in this coming transfer window, as they seek to improve the side.

It will mean that Frank Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch, and one name that will be high up on the shopping list of the Blues 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, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining Chelsea in the chase for the defenders signature.

Now, according to reports on the Daily Telegraph, Napoli will make Koulibaly available for a move to the Premier League when they finalise a £70m deal for Osimhen.

The Italian may be one of the best sides in the Italian League, but the coronavirus has hit the clubs hard over in Serie A and reports have claimed that Napoli will need to balance the books a little bit when they officially complete a deal for Osimhen.

And they know that there is enough interest from the Premier League to make sure that they can get around the £70 million that they are now seeking for the services of Koulibaly.

Look, WE ARE ALWAYS saying that Chelsea need to add a world class defender to that back-line to give them a bit of leadership at the back, so the reports that he has now decided to leave and Napoli are willing to sell, is big news for Chelsea.

And the fact that Lampard knows that he needs to spend some money will mean that a an offer will surely be submitted for the powerhouse?
