Chelsea ‘in talks’ over £44.5m deal for Napoli star Elseid Hysaj
Chelsea are reportedly looking to raid Napoli yet again as they aim to bring right-back Elseid Hysaj to Stamford Bridge in January.
Having marked Jorginho in the late spring, and also contracting Maurizio Sarri as supervisor, the Blues are prepared to try their luck for a third time.
As per Calciomercato, the West Londoners are in converses with the Serie A side as they look to lure the Albanian international to the Premier League.
They guarantee that Chelsea have opened arrangements with Napoli because of their fear that they could be slapped with a two-year transfer ban.
Hysaj, 24, flaunts a £44.5million discharge proviso, yet Chelsea are sure they can nab him cheaper as they would send him back on loan for the rest of the campaign.
The Italian outlet likewise reports that Napoli and the Blues made a « gentlemen’s agreement » to stop Sarri from signing any more of his players following the transfer of Jorginho.
In any case, with a potential exchange ban seemingly within easy reach, Chelsea are continuing to press ahead with the move.
It is comprehended that Hysaj – secured at Stadio San Paulo until 2021 – would be willing to be reunited with Sarri having spent three years under him.
The ex-Empoli star has featured in over 150 games since joining Napoli in 2015, and has showed up in 16 coordinates in all rivalries this season.
Should he make the move to join Chelsea, he will likely replace Davide Zappacosta, who could depart the club in the summer.
