Napoli's squad appears to taking shape ahead of the new Serie A season. The Partenopei have secured the signing of midfielder Piotr Zielinski and are close to landing Torino centre-back Nikola Maksimovic, paving the way for Kalidou Koulibaly's potential departure.
New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has identified centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly as one of his primary transfer targets, but nouveau riche Everton have now muscled in on the deal.
Napoli aren't willing to let go of their star man, but they would be forced to consider a €45 million offer if it were to come their way. The 25-year-old would certainly be a significant improvement on Medhi Benatia, who has signed for Juventus.
Chelsea have made another improved bid for Arsenal target Kalidou Koulibaly believed to be around the region of £34 million.
