Elseid Hysaj agent: I can't rule out resuming Chelsea negotiations

The agent of Napoli fullback Elseid Hysaj has reaffirmed the prospect of a Chelsea move in January.

Hysaj has struggled in a more attacking role under Carlo Ancelotti this season.

“I can't rule out resuming negotiations with Chelsea in January," Mario Giuffredi said on Radio Crc.

“We know there was contact in the summer because Sarri wanted him, and we also know that [Davide] Zappacosta is not to the liking of the Coach.

“We'll see how it goes, anything could happen.

“The Coach [Ancelotti] really rates the player, he hasn't played as much in the Champions League for purely tactical reasons.

“Ancelotti is a great Coach because he knows how to adapt the formation or tactical approach based on the opponent.

“Now that there's some rotation it's not correct to say Hysaj has lost his place. It only seems anomalous because in recent seasons he always played."
