Agent of Napoli star names huge price for client amid Chelsea links

The agent of reportedly Chelsea target and Napoli star Elseid Hysaj has spoken about interest in his client, and a possible price tag.

Hysaj was a favourite of new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri at Empoli before following him to Napoli in 2015 and establishing himself in Serie A.

Sarri was then axed by Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis in the summer, before he was finally  allowed to join Chelsea and replace Antonio Conte.

Midfielder Jorginho then followed him to west London and his agent Mario Giuffredi has said Hysaj, 24, wanted to follow him to the capital.

The Napoli right-back has come under fire this season after a perceived lack of form, but Giuffredi has defended the Albania international and has discussed interest from Chelsea in his client.

“Hysaj being targeted by Chelsea and other clubs? If you see that Ancelotti is playing Malcuit and you feel that Napoli is looking for other players, obviously it means that there are also requests for him.

“Hysai is a player who can do well in English football, since he has a lot of physicality and he is being targeted by many big clubs.

“Is his worth 50 million? For me, he is worth 60. I can not say that Hysaj, who for two months played badly, does not have the same value of the last 2-3 years.”
