Napoli defender’s agent reveals transfer interest from Chelsea

The agent of Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj has revealed that Chelsea were interest in signing the Albanian during the summer of 2018. The Blues had recruited Maurizio Sarri as their new manager last year and there were suggestions that he could be reunited with a number of players from the Stadio San Paolo.

However, Jorginho was the only purchase for the Blues from the Naples outfit but it appears that there was an approach from the west London giants for Hysaj. Speaking to Radio Punto Nuovo, agent Marco has revealed that Napoli had received a £43m bid from the Blues for Hysaj but they opted against sanctioning the sale of the versatile defender.
