Chelsea should sign world class defender Hysaj for £60 million after Serie star tells Blues exit is on
Chelsea should make a move to try and sign Elsaid Hysaj this summer after he confirmed he was leaving Napoli.
Despite the fact Chelsea cannot buy players right now, and despite all the rumours linking Maurizio Sarri with a move to Juventus, there has been a lot of transfer talk about whom the Blues could bring in over the next few months to help improve the side.
And although Sarri has a European winning side, there has been a lot of talk in the media that the Italian will seek to acquire a new world class defender in order to help their chances of winning the premier League.
Sarri lost out on challenging the likes of Liverpool or Manchester City this season as the likes of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger were simply not good enough, while Gary Cahill has left the club after failing to agree a new contract with the club.
Now they have closed in on a potential deal for Hysay after he announced his intentions to leave Napoli this summer.
Hysaj, 25, has made 170 appearances for Napoli since joining the club back in 2015, establishing himself as one of Maurizio Sarri’s close allies and star performers during his tenure in charge.
However, since Sarri’s departure to Chelsea last summer the right-back has become more of a fringe player under Carlo Ancelotti and thus wants to pursue a move away.
“I’m absolutely ready for a new challenge because I need change,” he recently told DigitAlb.
“I’m not the type of person who likes to stay at a club for too long.”
Hysaj has proven that he is more than capable of competing at the very highest level of the game and does have all the attributes to deal with the physicality of the Premier League, so all indications suggest that he could be a world class buy.
Chelsea need a new defence if they are serious about winning the Premier League and when players like Hysaj come on the market, a move should be made.
However, Napoli are terrible to do business with and Chelsea will need to make sure that they do not pay too much money for the defender.
