Frank Leboeuf says that Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly would be “very well appropriate” to Stamford Bridge.
After setting up a deal for Timo Werner, Chelsea was encouraged to compete with Liverpool for another reported transfer target, and Leboeuf points toward Koulibaly.
“I think Chelsea need a player like that. I don’t know if Koulibaly will be interested, but even if they have two very good central defenders, Koulibaly, is on a different level and fits very well,” he said, in talks with ESPN FC.
Talking about possible clubs for Koulibaly, former Chelsea defender Leboeuf said, “You have to make a choice on a number of points. The question is: ‘What’s the best fit for Koulibaly?’ and certainly for Van Dijk, and if you’re a defender like Koulibaly that would be the best central defense in the world.
“I know he has a link with Liverpool, Van Dijk and Koulibaly in the back- my God, that’s going to be another Red Season, I guess.
“I will never ask him to go to Manchester United for a number of reasons.
“I want him to win a few things, and I don’t think Manchester United is the club they used to be, and they’re not ready to win.”
