Deal Close: Agent Confims Centre-Back Will Join Chelsea Not Arsenal

It is the Premier League kick-off day, we weekends will be lighted up with games and victories will only make our weekends better.

According to latest reports, Arsenal transfer target Kalidou Kouliobaly is close to joining Chelsea and his representatives are keen on sealing the deal for him before the close of the transfer window.

The player allegedly fell out with Aurelio de Laurentis, Napoli’s president, and that is why his desire is to move away from the Italian club.

Arsenal were understood to be interested in the player but the report claims the player prefers a move to Chelsea.

Koulibaly’s €45 million tag might have put off several clubs, but Chelsea would still be keen to negotiate for the centre-back with Anotine Conte really keen on reinforcing his defense.

The Senegal international made 33 appearances in the Serie A last season, completing the full game in all but two of them. He averaged seven defensive actions per game and he committed three defensive errors, one of them leading to goal. His average pass accuracy was 86%. He committed 59 fouls and saw 11 yellow cards.
