Chelsea, Arsenal alerted as Napoli defender Koulibaly spies England move

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is ready to move to England this summer.

The Mirror says Senegal international Koulibaly has impressed during four years in Italy.

Potential suitors in the 26-year-old include both Chelsea and Arsenal .

Interested clubs are likely to bid early rather than risk his value rocketing in Russia at the World Cup this summer.

Manchester United could also join the race as Koulibaly was discovered by ex-Genk chief scout Roland Janssen, who is now at Old Trafford.

Koulibaly was in the French second tier at Metz before he moved to Genk in 2012 under Janssen's recommendation.
