Before the ongoing summer transfer window closes, Chelsea football club will most definitely remain keen on improving their defence by signing some proper defenders.

Do remember that the West London club enjoyed quite an interesting 2021/2022 football season where they ultimately finished in third position on the Premier League table.

But then, Chelsea football club have lost two experienced centre-backs; Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively and must now find replacements.

And if reports are anything to go by, then Chelsea football club have been linked with a transfer move for experienced Napoli central defender Kalidou Koulibaly this summer.

The 31-year-old Senegal International, who signed up for Serie A side Napoli after departing Genk back in 2014 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

The experienced centre-back was heavily involved for Napoli during the just concluded 2021/2022 season where he made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and providing three assists in total.

But then, Kalidou Koulibaly has just one year left on his current contract with Napoli and due to his refusal to sign a new contract, he could be planning to leave the club this summer.And according to reports from Daily Mail, Chelsea football club are closely monitoring his contract situation as they aim to lure him away from Napoli before the summer transfer window closes.

The reports further claimed that Chelsea are really interested in Kalidou Koulibaly and they have no problems in paying the needed £34million asking price to Napoli this summer.

But then, it remains to be seen if the experienced Kalidou Koulibaly will choose to sign a new contract and continue his career at Napoli or he will be interested in a move to join Chelsea before the transfer window closes.
