ADL: ‘I raised a wall for Koulibaly!’

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis says he “erected a wall” to keep Kalidou Koulibaly at the club.

The centre-back was heavily linked with a move away in the summer, with Chelsea and other Premier League clubs said to be interested.

“I have a beautiful squad, I’ve always thought that,” De Laurentiis told Il Mattino.

“[Coach Carlo] Ancelotti always changes his line-up and that surprises our opponents. I like the fact that we push with one full-back and then the other, like that it’s all so unpredictable.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly a prime transfer target for Barcelona, who scouted him against Liverpool.
