Koulibaly completes Chelsea move

Baku, July 16, AZERTAC

Kalidou Koulibaly is the second player to join Chelsea this summer, according to the official website of the club.

The defender arrives from Napoli and has signed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge Koulibaly, an international team-mate of Edouard Mendy’s, will significantly bolster our defensive options following the departures of Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Widely regarded as one of the best centre-backs in world football, the Senegalese possesses all the attributes an elite modern defender requires. He is a great reader of the game, a goal threat, and also adept in possession, comfortable bringing the ball out or playing progressive passes to put his team on the attack.

He has been deployed in a back three and a back four during his eight years at Napoli.

The captain of Senegal, Koulibaly is a natural leader and a strong character. He has plenty of experience challenging for domestic and international titles and joins the Blues ahead of the 2022/23 campaign aiming to do just that.
