Arsenal weighing up potential deal for Senegalese centre-back

North London Premier League side, Arsenal, are reportedly weighing up a bid for Napoli’s Senegalese centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Gunners are in the market for a central defender and TMW claims that the Teranga Lions man is now Arsene Wenger’s top target.

Koulibaly, 26, has previously been linked with a move to Chelsea, but Antonio Conte’s side failed with several bids last year.

Arsenal have now made an approach but Napoli, for the moment at least, remains unwilling to sell their prized asset.

Kalidou Koulibaly was born and raised in France by Senegalese parents and was therefore eligible for both nations.

He played for the U-20 French side starting in 2011.

However, in early September 2015, Koulibaly changed federations and joined the Senegal national football team
