Chelsea target Hysaj looks set to stay at Napoli

Chelsea target Hysaj looks set to stay at Napoli The agent of Elseid Hysaj, Mario Giufreddi, has revealed that he is confident of Hysaj staying at Napoli and returning to top form under Carlo Ancelotti. Manchester United and Chelsea have both been touted with interest in Hysaj, who has impressed for Napoli in recent years. Chelsea are keen to strengthen their defensive options and have targeted Hysaj as a potential new right-back. However, he looks set to snub interest from the Premier League and commit his future to Napoli in the Serie A. Speaking to Calcio Mercato, Giufreddi said this: “Hysaj? I talked a few moments ago with his father, I really liked his approach: we know its value, there may be moments of fogging but I am convinced that it will return to the levels expressed even in recent years. He suffered a bit from the adaptation with Ancelotti, after a very good time with Sarri.” Hysaj has made over 100 Serie A appearances for Napoli since his move from Empoli in 2015 and is regarded as one of the best fullbacks in the division. He has also been capped 37 times by his country Albania, and impressed in the 2016 European Championships.

However, while Manolas’ agent Evangelopulos says he knows nothing of Chelsea ’ s interest, he refused to rule out a summer exit. “ Chelsea have interest in Manolas? I don't know anything about this However, the Blues could delay a move for the defender this summer until their managerial

Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj ’ s agent recently spoke about the possibility of his client moving to the Premier League in the summer. According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, in a recent interview with Radio CRC, Hysaj ’ s agent Mario Giuffredi refused to rule out a possible move to Premier League

Elseid Hysaj’s agent has once again refused to rule out a future move to Stamford Bridge for his client.

Speaking to Radio Crc, as cited on Calciomercato, Mario Giuffredi discussed a potential move to the Premier League for his client.

“It seems to me that in that role Zappacosta is not in favor of Sarri and I think it takes another player. I can not exclude it. Chelsea pushes for Hysaj?”

“Ask questions where there is no company at the moment of the year. We speak. If you do not speak, nothing happens. If we talk about everything, it can happen.”

Giuffredi has been very vocal in Chelsea’s interest in the Albanian defender and his latest comments follow reports that claimed the Blues have opened talks with Napoli over a €50 million.

Chelsea target Hysaj could still be set for Napoli exit

Chelsea target Hysaj could still be set for Napoli exit Chelsea have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Napoli star Elseid Hysaj, according to reports in Italy. It is claimed that the right-back’s agent Mario Giufreddi has been in negotiations with the Serie A club’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis, with the chief keen to tie the defender down to a new and improved contract. Hysaj is an important player for Napoli and they have long been attempting to secure his future at the Stadio San Paolo. However, the Blues have been perennially linked with a move for the Albanian international and according to the Italian media, a January move could yet be on the cards. It was reported earlier on Friday that Giufreddi believes Hysaj is all but set to remain in Naples for the foreseeable future. However, according to Tele Sport, as cited by Calciomercato, the agent’s talks with De Laurentiis have reached an impasse, with a departure for the defender now a genuine possibility. It is believed that the Napoli president is angered by the demands of Hysaj’s entourage, with the agent reportedly demanding €3 million per season for his client, which is €1 million more than what he currently earns. Chelsea are well-stocked with options at right-back but Sarri could jump at the chance to sign one of his former players following his successful tenure in Italy.

Elseid Hysaj ’ s agent has confirmed that his client will not be leaving Napoli this summer. Mario Giuffredi has told Il Mattino, as Hysaj has been one of the many Napoli players to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, with Maurizio Sarri expected to take over from head coach Antonio Conte.

CHELSEA transfer target Kostas Manolas could be leaving Roma this summer, the defender’ s agent Ioannis Evangelopulos has claimed. However, while Manolas’ agent Evangelopulos says he knows nothing of Chelsea ’ s interest, he refused to rule out a summer exit.

It had been claimed the Blues could pay big money to complete a deal in the new year, but the defender could stay in Italy and see out the season with Napoli before moving to London next summer.

Hysaj was a favourite of Sarri during his time in Italy and the Chelsea head coach was very keen to bring him with him following his move from Napoli.

Chelsea signed Jorginho from Napoli over the summer but were prevented from completing any more deals after difficult negotiations with the Italian outfit.

Elseid Hysaj "will go to his mentor Sarri", claims journalist.
Chelsea will sign Elseid Hysaj from Napoli in either January or the summer, according to journalist Emanuele Cammarot. Hysaj has been hotly-tipped to team up with former manager Maurizio Sarri again and that looks to be coming to fruition. Writing in Napoli magazine, Cammarot confirmed the deal was happening, with a €45million fee likely: “Hysaj is on the way out.” “Ancelotti is ready to let him leave, and Aurelio de Laurentiis didn’t appreciate the take it or leave it offer on the contract, as the renewal terms were too high.” “The goodbye is already on the agenda, the Albanian will go to his mentor Sarri.” “All that’s left is to know if it’ll happen in June or January.” “The potential summer ban for Chelsea could make the negotiations start suddenly, but Napoli want the €50m from the clause and not a penny less.” “The agent will try around €40m, but in the end they’ll meet in the middle at €45m.” Hysaj signed for Napoli in 2015 and became a key man under Sarri, as they fell agonisingly short of Serie A glory last season. The 24-year-old right-back has made 153 appearances for the Italian giants, as well as winning 42 caps for Albania.
