Kalidou Koulibaly wants to move to England, and Chelsea are ready to buy him

Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly open to the idea of moving to Chelsea this summer.

Despite frequent links with a switch to the Premier League over the past couple of years, the 31-year-old has remained faithful to the Partenopei and will soon celebrate his eight-year anniversary in Naples.

However, Koulibaly now has just 12 months left to run on his contract with Luciano Spalletti's side, who are running the risk of losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

Manchester United were persistently linked with a move for Koulibaly last year, but new manager Erik ten Hag is seemingly focusing on other centre-back targets for the current window.

Chelsea and Barcelona are now said to be the two frontrunners for the Senegal international's signature, and the Blues have apparently stolen a march on the Blaugrana in the race for his signature.

According to The Mirror, Koulibaly is a name that has been mentioned at Stamford Bridge, and the former Metz and Genk defender would be keen on a move to the English capital.
