Chelsea scout Serie A midfielder ahead of summer swoop

chelseachelseaHere in the Transfer Tavern, the Chelsea fans have started a game of transfer bingo regarding Serie A players linked to the club- and somebody’s just got a full house!

The Daily Telegraph states Chelsea have been scouting Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly as the club eye potential replacements for John Terry, who is likely to leave the club upon the expiration of his contract this summer.

Chelsea’s captain is yet to be offered a new term and although Antonio Conte wants to keep the experienced defender, the club are identifying alternatives just in case they have to dip into the transfer market.

24-year-old Koulibaly has a release clause of £31.5m injected into his contract so Chelsea may find it difficult to land his signature, although the club has no issues with finance due to Roman Abramovich’s vast wealth.

Should Chelsea offer John Terry a new contract? Let us know in the comments below!
