Chelsea line up major signing of world-class defender

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Jul 8th 2016

The £33m acquisition of Michy Batshuayi is an exciting one for Chelsea supporters, but he will not be the only major signing at Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to Talksport, the Belgium international could soon be joined at the club by Kalidou Koulibaly, with the Napoli defender set to cost around £34m.

KALIDOU KOULIBALY

Having spent the last two seasons playing his football in Serie A with Napoli, the powerful centre-back will be extremely familiar to Antonio Conte.

During that time, he has clocked up 60 top-flight appearances, helping his high-flying side to keep 19 clean sheets:

Strong, quick and an excellent reader of the game, the Senegal international appears ideally-suited to life in the Premier League.

At 25 years of age, Koulibaly still has plenty of room for improvement, but his top-flight record last season was far superior to that of Gary Cahill:
