Hysaj agent open to Chelsea

Elseid Hysaj’s agent warned Napoli want to keep him, but “there is talk of Chelsea and we’ll evaluate any mutually advantageous” situations.

The Albania international has dropped down the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti and would relish a reunion with Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

“I had a meeting for about four hours with Ancelotti and (Napoli director of sport Cristiano) Giuntoli this week,” agent Mario Giuffredi told Rai Sport.

“We clarified the situation regarding the player and the lack of playing time. Ancelotti gave me his reasons, which I share fully, because he works with the player every day and knows his condition.

“The important thing is hearing that Ancelotti respects Hysaj. He confirmed his faith in him. Of course, the January transfer window is always to be evaluated and there has been talk of Chelsea, for example.

“If there are situations that are mutually advantageous, then we’d evaluate them. If nothing happens in January, then we’ll discuss a contract extension.”
