Meanwhile, according to According to a report from La Repubblica, Kalidou Koulibaly might head back to the Serie A to join Inter Milan as replacement for Skriniar who has been linked with a move to Chelsea.

The Nerazzurri are well aware of the possibility of Milan Skriniar’s departure. As such, they want to be prepared and bring in a world-class centre-back.

Koulibaly signed for Chelsea last summer, but hasn’t hit the ground running immediately. The Senegalese could be tempted to return to a familiar league.
