Chelsea are eyeing a massive swoop for Napoli’s centre back Kalidou Koulibaly as they look to add a top class central defender to their ranks this summer, according to The Mirror.
The Blues have had a poor season, finishing outside the top four and missing out on Champions League football for next season, all these coming after only lifting the Premier League title just under a year ago.
West Brom’s Jonny Evans is still believed to be on the Blue’s radar after previous failed attempts and they are likely to find a move for him much easier this time with West Brom relegated to the Championship this season.
But Chelsea are reported to be looking for a top class addition to their defense and see Koulibaly as the perfect option and will look to make a £53 million move for him this summer.
Koulibaly who stands at 6’4” has impressed since moving to Napoli in 2014, earning himself the nickname “The Wall” from fans.
