Chelsea will have to pay a lot of money to secure the signing of one of their long-term transfer targets according to a specific report from popular media portal Goal.

Senegalese international Koulibaly is widely regarded as one of the top three centre backs on the world football stage.

He was part of the Senegal squad to last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Kalidou Koulibaly has been a key performer for Napoli since joining the club from Belgian side Genk in 2014.z

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti recently revealed that Kalidou Koulibaly has a €150m release clause.

The player has a Napoli contract that runs until the end of the 2022/23 season but the release clause won’t be active until 2021.

Apart from Chelsea, Kalidou Koulibaly has been linked with other major European clubs like Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Kalidou Koulibaly put through his own net for the second goal scored by Arsenal in the 2-0 defeat handed out to Napoli in their Europa League quarterfinal first leg clash and he would be hoping to put things right when both sides meet again for the second leg on Thursday night.
