English Premier League Champions Chelsea have not given up on their pursuit of Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibally.
The Blues have been pursuing a deal for the Senegalese for two seasons now and look set to finally get the player.
Antonio Conte’s men had multiple bids rejected by Napoli last season, but news source from Italy are claiming that the Blues are still circling around the player.
Koulibally is one of strongest central defenders in Europe right now and his performances at the heart of Napoli’s defence has caught the attention of several top European sides, but the Blues remain his most serious suitors.
Koulibally himself has admitted that he would love to test himself against the very best players in what he considers the best league in the world.
The Blues are in the hunt for a new tough tackling defender that would replace the outgoing John Terry as the Englishman’s career comes to an end.
Conte has his eyes set on other alternatives, but he will do all he can to get Koulibally before moving on to other options.
