Napoli have put a hefty €120m price tag on Kalidou Koulibaly to deter the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian media outlet Rai Sports, as quoted by Football Italia, is reporting that the Serie A side are keen to keep hold of the central defender and have upped their asking price in a tactic to deter interest.

Koulibaly has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and he was heavily touted as a possible target for Chelsea FC last summer.

However, according to the same story, Napoli have “no intention” of cashing in on Koulibaly this summer and have upped their asking price to deter potential suitors from the Premier League.

The 26-year-old has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances this season and he scored five goals and made one assist in 34 Serie A games.

Chelsea FC are likely to be on the lookout for a number of reinforcements this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.

Meanwhile, the Blues are currently preparing for their FA Cup final showdown against Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday evening.
