​Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has admitted that, while he isn't pushing for a transfer away this summer, he may have to if contract talks with his club continue to stall.


Koulibaly is believed to be on the radars of a number of top European sides including Arsenal and Chelsea following a stellar season in which he helped Napoli finish as runners up.


Napoli legend Diego Maradona even went so far as to make the now ​infamous remark that ​Koulibaly would be playing at Real Madrid or Barcelona if he were white.


As a result of his fine form, the 24-year-old is hoping to sign a new contract with improved terms, as his current one expires in 2019, although Napoli have yet to open talks about any deal.

"Big clubs want to sign me and there is no sign of a renewal with Napoli," he told L'Equipe, as quoted by ​Football Italia.


"The negotiations for a contract extension have stalled and they never wanted to discuss with us.


"No, I have not talked to [Antonio Conte] but that may be soon. If nothing happens at Napoli, I will start to have contact with other clubs.
