The representative of Elseid Hysaj has suggested that the Albanian could part ways with Napoli in the near future with Chelsea among those interested in his signature.

The full-back was linked with a potential move to Stamford Bridge during the summerbut a deal never materialised with owner Aurelio De Laurentiis being reluctant to sell a second player to the Blues after Jorginho.

However, the right-sided defender has since struggled for form which has witnessed the occasional game for Kevin Malcuit and his agent Mario Giuffredi has now suggested that a winter switch could be on the cards.

"Chelsea in for Hysaj? If you see Napoli are playing Malcuit and looking at other players, clearly it means that there are also enquiries. Those who say otherwise are misinformed," he told Radio CRC.

Hysaj has a strong relationship with Maurizio Sarri from their time together at both Empoli and Napoli and his representative had previously suggested that the defender would have no second thoughts, should the Italian push for a reunion.
