Former player turned TV pundit, Rio Ferdinand, has warned his ex-international team-mate, Frank Lampard, against making a move for Kalidou Koulibaly.
If there’s anyone that would know about how to play the centre-back role with aplomb, it would be the former West Ham United, Leeds United and Manchester United defender.
Despite being a mainstay of the Napoli side, Koulibaly doesn’t appear to have impressed Ferdinand who even went as far as to suggest that buying him would present a gamble for the Blues boss.
“The depth of centre-halves in world football isn’t what it was 10/15 years ago.”
