Long-term Chelsea target Elseid Hysaj could be available for a fee worth just €25 million this summer. 

Maurizio Sarri reportedly contacted the defender’s agent during the January transfer window as he pursued a deal for his former player, with whom he enjoyed success at Napoli. 

However, the Serie A giants were keen to retain the services of the right-back beyond the end of the mid-season window and rebuffed any advances.

Napoli could be forced into selling the player this summer, though, as they have not yet reached an agreement regarding a new contract at the Stadio San Paolo. 

According to a report Il Mattino, as cited by Calciomercato, the Italian club could accept an offer worth just €25m for Hysaj, with his situation at Napoli still under scrutiny. 

Chelsea are stocked with right-backs, especially with Reece James returning from his loan spell at Wigan Athletic at the end of the season, but a cut-price deal for Hysaj could be of interest.
