Latest news surrounding the future of Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is that three English Premier League clubs are fighting for his signature.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly showing interest in signing the Napoli defender this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The 26-year-old Lions of Teranga international has been one of Serie A's most outstanding centre-backs for a number of seasons and has long been linked with a move to the EPL.

Although the Blues failed to snatch him away with an offer close to £60 million in the past, they are still interested in the Senegal international.

Corriere dello Sport reports that the Gunners and the Reds have also joined in the race to sign Koulibaly this summer, but the Serie A giants will not allow him to leave cheaply as they want a fee of over £65 million.

All three Premier League giants are in the market for a new centre-back this summer and they are said to have been impressed by the Partenopei star.

On the other hand, Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is also linked with a move to Chelsea as Antonio Conte’s replacement and has put contract talks on hold at Napoli.
