Chelsea Interested in Napoli Star

Ghoulam's experience in two different leagues could be an asset to Chelsea.

Recent reports reveal that Chelsea have shown interest in Napoli left back Faouzi Ghoulam.

It is suspected that with current Chelsea player Felipe Luis wanting a return to Atletico Madrid, José Mourinho has sought after a replacement in Ghoulam.

Chelsea may want to use Felipe Luis as a means to sweeten any deal with Atletico, but will be sure to leave money aside for the potential bid for Ghoulam, who is valued at around £10.8million.

Since Chelsea are yet to unveil any done deals, there is still a realistic chance that Ghoulam was the defender Mourinho was referring to when he stated he was in need of one earlier this month.

Ghoulam had already played in Ligue 1 before moving to Napoli Serie A of Napoli, where he was selected for this season’s Europa League Squad of the Season. In the push for more silverware, it appears Chelsea could benefit from a 24-year old with such experience.
