Chelsea have finally been able to secure a deal for Napoli right-back Elseid Hysaj, according to reports which are circling in the media.
It has been no secret in the media that boss Maurizio Sarri is still keen to improve key areas of the pitch in the January transfer window, as the Italian feels that we are lacking quality in the back-line and up-front, the two areas that we are the weakest.
And with the January window just a few months away, there has been constant speculation in the media that we could bring in the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Milan Skriniar, Daniel Rugani or even Toby Alderweireld, as a number of players have been linked with a mega money move here.
But now reports in the Daily Star website has claimed we have agreed a deal with Napoli to sign Hysaj in the January transfer window, after weeks of speculation that he could be leaving the Italians to seek a fresh challenge.
Hysaj wanted to join us in the summer transfer window, but Napoli did not want to sanction the sale of another big player after letting star midfielder Jorginho head to Stamford Bridge with boss Sarri.
The defender will, according to the newspaper, cost us some £50m to bring to Stamford Bridge.
Will Hysaj be a good buy for the club if the reports are actually true?
Hysaj has developed into a solid defender at Napoli over the last few seasons and has all the attributes to be a huge success in the Premier League, and the fact that he has already worked with Sarri means he will adapt quicker that a signing that has no connection with the club.
So yes he would be a good buy for the club, especially as he is just coming into the prime of his life.
