Huge transfer blow for Chelsea

Chelsea could be about to be dealt with a huge summer transfer blow as a summer target is set to snub a move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been interested in signing Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly for a number of months, but have been unable to come to an agreement over with the Italian club.

However reports today suggest that the defender could be set to sign a new contract with Napoli and effectively end any talk of a summer transfer.

Napoli had been asking for £60million for the defender, a figure that Chelsea were unwilling to pay.

Chelsea are in the market for a new centre back with Kurt Zouma injured until 2017 and John Terry about to turn 36 years old.
