Napoli-based journalist Emanuele Cammaroto has claimed Chelsea are all set to sign defender Elsaid Hysaj in the coming transfer window.
After a terrible end to the Antonio Conte era in which we finished well down the pecking order in the Premier League, Maurizio Sarri has brought in a new sense of optimism aswell as a new style of play that makes us the most exciting to watch in the English game.
But despite the fact we are almost back to out best, Sarri is seeking reinforcements in the coming transfer windows in a bid to get back to the very top of the game and challenge Manchester City for the League title and then go on to challenge for the Champions League title.
And one name that has been heavily tipped to make the move to Stamford Bridge in the coming transfer windows is that of Hysaj, who has established himself as one of the best right-backs in Seria A with Napoli.
Recent reports in the media have suggested that Sarri has already secured a transfer deal for Hysaj, with the club reportedly ready to part with £50 million to bring the defender to London on a big five-year deal.
And now, amid all the transfer speculation, Cammaroto has claimed that we are indeed set to sign the defender.
He was quoted on the Daily Express website: “Ancelotti is ready to let him leave, and Aurelio de Laurentiis didn’t appreciate the take it or leave it offer on the contract, as the renewal terms were too high.
“The goodbye is already on the agenda, the Albanian will go to his mentor Sarri.”
He added: “All that’s left is to know if it’ll happen in June or January.
“The potential summer ban for Chelsea could make the negotiations start suddenly, but Napoli want the €50m from the clause and not a penny less.
“The agent will try around €40m, but in the end they’ll meet in the middle at €45m.”
Will Hysaj be welcome to Stamford Bridge?
Simply put, YES HE WOULD!
