They ‘need a player like that’ – Chelsea urged to sign Napoli star by former player

Frank Leboeuf was an absolutely brilliant defender for Chelsea in the 90s, so it would certainly be wise to listen to him when he speaks.

Especially when he is recommending a centre back, the position that he played so superbly throughout his successful career.

Leboeuf believes that Chelsea need to sign a new centre back this summer, and he wants a high calibre type.

In fact, he has named a player whom many Chelsea fans would love to see arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer, and many would agree when Leboeuf says that Chelsea ‘need a player like that.’

He is of course talking about Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly.

Chelsea would surely benefit from a player with the leadership qualities and 18-yard box dominance that Koulibaly can bring you, and Leboeuf believes Chelsea are the perfect fit for him as well.

As reported by Goal, the former Blues defender said:

“I will never ask him to go to Manchester United for many reasons.

“I want him to win some stuff and I think Manchester United is not the club that they used to be and they’re not ready to win stuff.

“I think Liverpool would be a good fit with [Virgil] van Dijk, that would be fantastic. PSG as well with Marquinhos, there would be two great central defenders.

“I think Chelsea will need a player like that. I don’t know if Koulibaly will be interested, but even if they have two very good central defenders, Koulibaly I think belongs to another level and would fit very well.”
