Top 5 centre-backs in world football right now
#4 Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli)
There is no doubt that Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the most sought after defenders in the world right now. He has been a constant transfer target for English giants such as Manchester United and Chelsea, but the defender has time and again expressed his loyalty towards his present club Napoli.
Koulibaly, who has been a monster in Napoli's own half for the past couple of seasons, has been in great form in the present campaign too, with the Italian club conceding just 20 goals in 26 Serie A games.
The Senegalese's strength is one of the major factors which makes him almost unbeatable in the Napoli penalty area. It also gives his team an edge during corners and set pieces. Most of the strong centre-backs lack pace due to strength being their major attribute, but Koulibaly is an exception. He can challenge Serie A's top attackers like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala when it comes to speed.
