Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly unhappy at Chelsea and is looking for a return to the Italian Serie A next season, reports Gazzetta dello Sport. The Italian newspaper has even suggested that representatives of the Senegal defender have already spoken with a delegation of Juventus and in particular boss Massimo Allegri about a possible transfer in the summer.
Koulibaly joined Chelsea from Napoli last summer in a deal worth around 40 million euros. At first the central defender was a starter under Thomas Tuchel but after the German was sacked, Koulibaly dropped down the pecking order under Graham Potter first and later on Frank Lampard. The 31-year-old is therefore reportedly unhappy with his limited game time at Stamford Bridge and is hoping for a return to Italy next season.
A transfer back to the Serie A and signing a contract at Juventus would not be welcomed by the fans of Napoli. The two clubs are big rivals in Italy and their contests really represent a North vs South conflict in Italy. Koulibaly played several years for Napoli, making a smashing 317 appearances for the South Italians. It is believed that Chelsea is prepared to accept bids around 20 to 25 million euros for Koulibaly.
