Chelsea fail in defender pursuit

Chelsea fail in Ghoulam quest

Italian giants Napoli have reportedly rebuffed an offer from Chelsea for defender Faouzi Ghoulam.

The Algerian international has established himself as a regular at the Naples outfit since his move from Saint Etienne in January 2014.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the talented defender produced a number of impressive displays for Napoli in the Europa League last season, and this has prompted the Blues to make a £10.8m offer for his services.

However, Napoli have rebuffed the bid insisting that the player is not for sale.

Ghoulam made 39 appearances for Napoli last season.
