Elseid Hysaj’s agent has cast doubt over a new contract with Napoli, claiming that Chelsea are interested in the right-back.
Mario Giuffredi said last week that he would discuss a renewal for Hysaj with Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis, but the emergence of Kevin Malcuit and a perceived stagnation on the Albanian’s part led the representative to talk up a move to Chelsea.
“Chelsea in for Hysaj? If you see Napoli are playing Malcuit and hear they’re looking at other players, it means there are also enquiries,” he told Radio CRC.
“Those who say otherwise are misinformed. Hysaj is a player who can do well in English football, given he’s very physical and being watched by big clubs.
“Is he worth €50m? He’s worth €60m for me.”
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri coached Hysaj at both Empoli and the Partenopei.
