“We still like Roma and it is in Napoli’s interests to negotiate a transfer in January,” said Elseid Hysaj’s agent, warning he's approaching the end of his contract.
The Albania international full-back had already been close to a move over the summer and talk has sparked up again following Davide Zappacosta’s serious knee injury.
“There had been discussions in the summer with Roma, then we stopped when the season began, but we still like them as a destination,” agent Mario Giuffredi told Radio Marte.
“I think it is Napoli’s interests to negotiate a transfer in January, seeing as they risk losing him as a free agent in June 2021. They’d only have the summer left otherwise, and seeing as Napoli have been fundamental in Hysaj’s career, we want to avoid leaving for free.”
Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur had also shown interest in the 25-year-old.
