‘On My Knees. This Will Be Another Thiago Silva’ ‘4 Years Too Late’ Fans Debate Claims That Chelsea Have Revived Move For Defensive Colossus

Chelsea have held talks with agent Fali Ramadani about signing Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to Matteo Moretto.

The Italian journalist claims that the Blues could reignite their interest in the Senegalese international as they look to find replacements for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer:

Koulibaly has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge on and off since the summer of 2017 but he is closing in on his 31st birthday and supporters on Twitter are very much split on whether he would still be a good signing:

As we have seen with Thiago Silva, centre-backs can continue to perform at the highest level well into their 30s so, if Koulibaly is available for a reasonable price, it could be a worthwhile purchase.

Moretto believes it would take a “super offer” for Napoli to consider selling Koulibaly but the player is reaching the final year of his contract with the Serie A club, so they won’t be able to hold out for that much money.
