Hysaj ready to extend at Napoli

Napoli are reportedly close to agreeing a new contract with Albania international full-back Elseid Hysaj.

The 26-year-old is only tied to the club until June 2021, so must either be sold this summer or risk leaving as a free agent.

At the Stadio San Paolo since 2015 and spending practically his entire career in Italy, Hysaj had seemed set to leave a few months ago.

According to, the situation has changed thanks to coach Gennaro Gattuso, who asked for him to remain.

They are optimistic about talks that would take his new contract to June 2025.

Hysaj has been linked with a move to the Premier League, particularly for Tottenham Hotspur and Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
