Transfer News: Chelsea confirm official Deal for Senegalese defender

Chelsea Football Club have announced their second signing of the summer.

It's Good news for Chelsea fans as the club confirmed the arrival of world class defender from Napoli.

Senegal International, Kalidou Koulibaly has been confirmed as new Chelsea star after completing his medicals and joking up with the Chelsea squad in the United States.

Koulibaly is Chelsea's second official arrival of the summer after Raheem Sterling was confirmed earlier in the week.

Chelsea moved quickly for Koulibaly after Bayern moved ahead of them in negotiations for Mathijs de Ligt from Juventus. Chelsea's other targets for the position were Nathan Ake at Man City and Jules Kounde at Sevilla.

Chelsea couldn't meet Man City's financial demands while Kounde is closer to joining Barcelona.

However, Chelsea are still looking for one more defender to make up for the departures of both Antonio Rudiger and Christensen and PSG's Presnel Kimpembe is the favourite to join the club next.

Chelsea are already in direct negotiations with PSG for his signature.

In the meantime, Koulibaly is an incredible signing for Chelsea.
