Todd Boehly's consortium are set to be named as the new owners of the club before the end of May, with restrictions to be lifted upon the announcement.

Other defenders have also been linked with Chelsea. Thomas Tuchel is an admirer of Marquinhos, while Presnel Kimpembe and Josko Gvardiol have been looked at.

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are set to depart the club at the end of the season on free transfers as the Blues must dip into the market to replace their defensive duo.

It remains to be seen as to who will be selected out of the shortlisted candidates but Koulibaly looks to be one of the most obtainable defenders on the market ahead of the summer.
