Agent revives Chelsea talk for Napoli fullback Elseid Hysaj

The agent of Napoli fullback Elseid Hysaj has again talked up a move to Chelsea.

The Albania international has dropped down the pecking order at Napoli under Carlo Ancelotti.

“I had a meeting for about four hours with Ancelotti and (Napoli director of sport Cristiano) Giuntoli this week," agent Mario Giuffredi told Rai Sport.

“We clarified the situation regarding the player and the lack of playing time. Ancelotti gave me his reasons, which I share fully, because he works with the player every day and knows his condition.

“The important thing is hearing that Ancelotti respects Hysaj. He confirmed his faith in him. Of course, the January transfer window is always to be evaluated and there has been talk of Chelsea, for example.

“If there are situations that are mutually advantageous, then we'd evaluate them. If nothing happens in January, then we'll discuss a contract extension."
