Premier League champions Chelsea are back on the case of Napoli defender KalidouKoulibaly, according to reports in Italy.
The Blues are already considering a deal of €60 million for the player. He joined from Genk back in 2014 but he quickly established himself at the Partenopei.
Past Chelsea bosses were keen on the player. Current manager Antonio Conte, who is knowledgeable about Italian football, agrees that he is worthy of chasing. Stamford Bridge were linked with the player last season and they launched a bid of €55 million. However, the move failed and Koulibaly remained with the Serie A side.
There are reports that Conte is looking at getting the player this summer after all the speculations have died down. Conte is believed to be a fan of the player and he hopes Napoli take the €60 million he values the 25-year old. In his three year stay, Koulibaly had played 119 games, scoring three times.
As Chelsea chase the Serie A star, another in the league Felipe Anderson has revealed that he is interested in a move to the Premier League. The player was linked with a move to Manchester United in 2015 but it failed to materialize.
United are set for an overhaul as they return to the Champions League. The Lazio star’s comment has put United on alert in case they are interested in him. Since arriving from Santos in 2013, Anderson has scored 26 goals in 141 games for Lazio. The midfielder claims to be on holiday for now and not so worried about his future.
United have been linked with several player this term but the priority is getting a top striker and good defenders. The club has enough midfielders so a move for Anderson is unlikely.
