Agent of Napoli star hints at Chelsea move in January

06 December at 15:15
Napoli left-back Elseid Hysaj has been the topic of much discussion in the past months, with Chelsea heavily linked with the Albanian. Maurizio Sarri left Napoli for Chelsea in the summer and already signed Jorginho from his former club, leaving many to believe he could strike again. Chelsea may face a transfer ban for their violation of player registration rules so are looking to get the deal sorted as soon as January.
Hysaj’s agent, Mario Giuffredi, spoke on Radio CRC about the potential move, certainly not shutting any doors in the Blues’ pursuit:
“Because Hysaj was wanted by Chelsea in the summer, it seems to me that in that role Zappacosta is not in the favour of Sarri and I think he wants another player. I cannot exclude it. Chelsea pushes for Hysaj? We speak. If you do not speak, nothing happens. If we talk about everything, it can happen.”
