Chelsea are currently in talks with Napoli over a likely €50 million deal to land Elseid Hysaj from Napoli for the January transfer window.
According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Chelsea and Napoli have held multiple meetings over the transfer of Elseid Hysaj.
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.
