Chelsea to submit defender bid in the next 24 hours - player could have medical this week


Chelsea will launch one final bid to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, has revealed.

According to the Italian website, the Blues will tomorrow make one last offer in the region of €55million.

Napoli have so far rejected all offers made for the Senegalese but they may have to accept defeat and let him join Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, transfer market expert Emanuele Giulianelli believes Torino defender Nikola Maksimovic could be an alternative to the Napoli man for the Blues.

"I wouldn't be surprised if Maksimovic takes a flight to London in the next few days [to agree personal terms with Chelsea]," he told Italian TV channel Sportitalia.

The Serbian is also a target for the Partenopei and they would be ready to offer €24million plus bonus to sign the 24-year-old.
