Arsenal and Chelsea are set to go head to head for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.

The Telegraph says Koulibaly is on Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger’s transfer radar.

The centre-back position is believed to be Wenger’s priority after an inconsistent season from Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista.

Other reports claim former Juventus boss and new Chelsea boss Conte is ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign the powerful defender and is even set to hold crunch transfer talks with the Napoli man in the coming days.

The Senegal international Koulibaly would cost in the region of £20million but Wenger has already demonstrated a willingness to make signings this summer after the arrival of Granit Xhaka .
