Napoli not ruling out Hysaj sale

Napoli not ruling out Hysaj sale Napoli are not ruling out a deal to sell defender Elseid Hysaj to Chelsea in the future. Reports in Italy have revealed that should the club and Hysaj fail to meet an agreement over a new deal by January at the very latest, he will be forced into considering his options. Chelsea have been very keen to bring the Albanian defender to the Premier League since Maurizio Sarri took the job. Hysaj was one of a number of Napoli players that Sarri tried to bring with him to London, but was only able to sign Italian midfielder Jorginho. Napoli are also aware of the emergence French defender Kévin Malcuit, who they signed from Lille not long ago. The opportunity to sell Hysaj for big money, with a ready-made replacement already at the club could be too good of an offer to turn down for the Naples outfit. Cesar Azpilicueta has been used at right-back this season but the potential arrival of Hysaj could see the Spaniard return to a central role going forward.

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 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.

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.

Sarri contacts Hysaj's agent to discuss Chelsea move.
Maurizio Sarri appears ready to take Chelsea’s pursuit of Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj into his own hands. According to Rai Sport, as cited on Calciomercato, the Chelsea head coach has personally contacted the player’s agent to discuss a potential move to Stamford Bridge. The defender has been heavily linked with a move to London since Sarri took the job after leaving Napoli. The Albanian was a favourite under Sarri in Naples and he is keen for the defender to follow him to Chelsea. Sarri’s actions appear to have angered those at Napoli, with club president Aurelio De Laurentiis unhappy with what many would consider as an underhand tactic. Hysaj’s agent himself has talked up the move to Stamford Bridge, with the player still yet to commit to a new contract in Italy. Napoli are keen to keep the player beyond the end of the January window but could look to cash in at the end of the season.
