Now, with Sarri at Chelsea, rumour over the player's future has grown in recent months, even though he has remained a defensive mainstay at Napoli.
Chelsea are set to launch the offensive for Hysaj in the January transfer window, with impending sanctions over deals for underage players – possibly a transfer ban – forcing them to consider big moves for the winter.
The Spaniard is unlikely to leave Chelsea either, having signed a new four-year deal earlier this week.
Should the Italian leave, The Blues will need to sign a top-class replacement, making Hysaj a viable target, who would likely share minutes with Azpilicueta.
