Antonio Conte is closing in on a Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season as a manager in English football after his Chelsea side beat London rivals Tottenham to book their place in the final of the FA Cup against Arsenal at the end of May.

However, the good news does not end there for the Italian, who will undoubted have seen comments from Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis regarding long-term target Kalidou Koulibaly.

“If there’s a new offer from Chelsea for Koulibaly?” De Laurentiis told Gazzetta dello Sport (via The Express).

“It will depend on the player’s will, because if he doesn’t want to stay then he can leave.”

The defender was linked with the Blues both last summer and in January, although Conte was put off by his £60m price tag. However, with a huge payout thanks to their Premier League success this season looking likely, the former Juventus boss may well be happy to fork out such a fee this time around.

Conte will be on the look out for a new centre-half this summer, after captain John Terry announced his plans to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
