It’s been announced multiple times already by various members of the Italian press, but this summer is the one where Kalidou Koulibaly is finally expected to leave Napoli for greener pastures.
His next destination remains a mystery, but the general consensus is he’ll either end up in the Premier League or in Ligue 1 at Paris Saint-Germain.
