The 25-year-old has made 119 appearances for Napoli since joining the Serie A outfit back in 2014 but has been heavily linked with a Premier League switch since last year.

It’s understood Chelsea were on the brink of signing Koulibaly in the summer of 2016, before David Luiz agreed to move to Stamford Bridge, and Antonio Conte remains interested in the Senegal centre-back.

Bruno Satin, Koulibaly’s representative, confirmed ‘offers’ but insisted the defender is a Napoli player until they decided otherwise.

‘Every day you can read about interested clubs, in terms of rumours you in Italy are top of the world.
