Ex-Napoli Star Koulibaly A Major Defensive Target For Inter Milan
Inter are aiming to make defensive reinforcements in the summer.
Replacing Milan Skriniar is a priority, given that the Slovakian will leave to join Paris Saint-Germain.
In this sense, Koulibaly would represent a lot of experience and proven quality in the Italian top flight, in spite of his underwhelming stint at Stamford Bridge.
Reportedly, Chelsea star Koulibaly is one of Inter’s main targets to replace Skriniar.
The Senegalese international has not enjoyed the best of seasons with Chelsea since moving from Napoli last summer.
However, the Nerazzurri have few doubts about his quality and suitability for the team. Koulibaly made 317 appearances during his time with the Partenopei, in which he established himself as one of Serie A’s outstanding defenders.
Inter believe that the 31-year-old would have the ideal attributes to play in coach Simone Inzaghi’s back three.
When the Nerazzurri meet with Chelsea, they will push to loan back Lukaku. And on top of that, Sky reports, they’ll also try to bring Koulibaly back to Serie A in a similar deal.
