Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly remains the subject of intense transfer scrutiny with Everton and Chelsea both determined to sign the player.
The player has announced his desire to quit Napoli, as reported by his agent Bruno Satin,, but as of yet, no side has been willing to match the asking price for the star, which is believed to be in the region of €45-million.
With Arsenal having bolted at the fee for the player’s services, Everton and Chelsea remain keen on striking a deal for Senegal international.
‘I was in Dimaro on Saturday and we discussed a contract renewal,’ Satin told Radio CRC. ‘However, we are not at the point of reaching an agreement. The desire of the player is to leave the club, not renew.
‘We are told by the club that he is a great player but from the renewal on offer, we don’t see this.’
Satin has revealed his client has no interest in joining Juventus.
‘Last year they wanted to sell him, stating he was not focused enough, but then last season he has shown all his quality.
‘To the fans I say stay calm because he won’t be joining Juventus. Chelsea and Everton are still interested as they are both searching for a central defender of his quality,’ he concluded.
Koulibaly made 33 appearances for Napoli in Serie A last term.
