The summer season is in full swing, and the Premier League clubs are working hard to improve their squads. It appears that the 2022/23 season will be very tough. No top club wants to be left out of the race. After unveiling Raheem Sterling, Chelsea have effectively completed the Kalidou Koulibaly deal.
Full agreement was reached yesterday, and Napoli accepted Chelsea's £34 million offer. Koulibaly jetted into London a few hours ago to complete his first part of a medical test, and then he will be on a flight to Los Angeles for the official confirmation. The Senegalese defender is set to sign a four-year deal with a net salary of £8.46 million per year. He will then link up with his new teammates for the preseason.
Chelsea appear to be on the verge of signing three defenders this summer. They are moving forward with Nathan Ake's transfer and are still deciding whether PSG Kimpepe is a viable option. The Blues are doing this to close the gap between themselves and teams like Liverpool and Manchester City, which are already ahead of them.
The blues finished third last season, 19 points behind Manchester city and 18 points behind Liverpool. Since thier last EPL title win in 2017, City and Liverpool have been the dorminant teams in position one and two respectively.
