Cape Town - Napoli defender and Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly looks set for a move to Chelsea, after admitting that a move to a bigger club is imminent.
The 24-year-old joined Napoli in 2014 and following a number of impressive displays in the 2015/16 season, whereby he featured in a total of 42 matches for Maurizio Sarri's side in all competitions, Koulibaly looks to be on the verge of moving again.
Media reports have strongly linked the player with a move to Chelsea in the summer, despite Arsene Wenger reportedly wanting to secure the lanky Senegalese to partner Laurent Koscielny.
Koulibaly did not rule out a move away from Italy and was quoted in the French daily newspaper L’Equipe as saying that his future at the Serie A club looked uncertain after talks over a new contract apparently stalled.
"Big clubs want to sign me and there is no sign of a renewal with Napoli. The negotiations for a contract extension have stalled and they never wanted to discuss with us," he said.
"I have not talked to [Antonio Conte] but that may be soon. If nothing happens at Napoli, I will start to have contact with other clubs.
"The game In England could be suitable for me but I like Italy, I do not press for a transfer but I hope to sign a renewal with Napoli or we proceed to other solutions.
"Napoli also wants to make money."
