Napoli set to lose star as Atletico and Chelsea up pursuit of defender

08 January at 12:00
According to what has been reported by CalcioNapoli24 TV, Elseid Hysaj, Napoli's Albanian defender, is nearing a move elsewhere - with both Atletico Madrid and Chelsea extremely interested in signing the full-back.

Hysaj, who was a top priority target of Chelsea over the past year, now looks as if he could be moving to Spain - with Atletico Madrid sporting director Berta proposing the idea of Hysaj to head coach Diego Simeone, as per those reports from CalcioNapoli24TV.

Berta is said to have a close relationship with Napoli's sporting director Giuntoli and, therefore, could use this to put the Spanish side in pole position for Hysaj's signature. Berta is aware of the fondness Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has for the Albanian and therefore may attempt to act fast and secure his signature as soon as possible.
