Napoli, Albania full-back Hysaj in Arsenal sights

Arsenal are believed to be showing considerable interest in Napoli's Elseid Hysaj.

The Daily Star is reporting that the 22-year-old right-back has emerged on the radar of the Gunners after impressing for Albania against Switzerland at Euro2016 on Saturday.

The rumour comes as Barcelona continue to show interest in Spain international Hector Bellerin who starred for Arsenal last season.

It is understood that Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay £15million for Hysaj if Bellerin is lured from the Emirates Stadium to return to former club Barcelona where he would replace Juventus-bound Dani Alves.

Hysaj also has interest from Chelsea and Manchester United but would prefer to compete in the Champions League which could make a move to Arsenal appear more fruitful.
