Napoli want to keep centre-back Koulibaly amid Chelsea interest

by -

Napoli are more confident they can keep centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly after the Senegal international put the pen to paper on a new and improved deal with the Azzurri until the summer of 2021, despite Chelsea showed an interest in the last transfer market window.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that president Aurelio De Laurentiis won’t allow the defender to leave the club regardless of the cost.

It is understood that Chelsea offered around £55m to land Koulibaly to Stamford Bridge last summer, before signing back David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain.
