De Laurentiis: “Kalidou Koulibaly is unapproachable”

by -

Chelsea are set to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager, with Gianfranco Zola reportedly eager to become the Blues’ next director of sport.

With the Italian boss at Stamford Bridge, some reports suggest a number of players could be signed by Chelsea from Napoli and Senegalese centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly seems to be their main target.

However, Azzurri’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed “not just one” player will leave the Serie A side when the transfer market window reopens in July.

He said: “Koulibaly is unapproachable and with him also [Piotr] Zielinski and with them [Marko] Rog.”

It is understood Napoli rejected a massive £58m bid for Koulibaly earlier last summer, before completing the signing of Antonio Rudiger from AS Roma.
