Koulibaly helped Genk win the Belgian Cup in 2013 and had two solid seasons, prompting a move to Serie A club Napoli in 2014 on a five-year deal. Around the same time, he had interest from France, but he opted to play for Senegal, where his parents hailed from.

Koulibaly spent eight years in Italy with Napoli, progressing his career with numerous accolades including being in the Serie A Team of the Year four times.

He helped Senegal win the Africa Cup of Nations in early 2022, before signing with Chelsea in July 2022 for 33 million pounds.

In July 2023, he left Chelsea to join Saudi club Al Hilal.
