Arsenal & Man Utd Target Claims Club Has Agreed To Pay His £43m Release Clause
Arsenal and Manchester United target Elseid Hysaj has told Napoli a mystery club has agreed to pay his £43.7m release clause this summer
The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Elseid Hysaj….
Arsenal and Manchester United target Elseid Hysaj has told Napoli a mystery club has agreed to pay his £43.7m release clause this summer, according to the Mirror.
Hysaj came through the youth ranks at Empoli before earning a move to Napoli in 2015 and he’s developed in to one of the best right-backs in Italian football over the past two years.
The 24-year-old has been virtually ever-present for Maurizio Sarri’s side this season with his impressive form helping Napoli go toe-to-toe with Juventus for the Serie A title this campaign.
It seems Hysaj’s potential has alerted clubs here in the Premier League as the Mirror claim that Arsenal and Man Utd have both been linked with a swoop for the full-back this summer.
Arsene Wenger could be in the market for a new right-back as Hector Bellerin has been strongly linked with a move away from the Emirates and Hysaj could be viewed as a potential replacement.
Jose Mourinho is also expected to sign another right-back as the United boss needs a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia – who turns 33 this summer – and Hysaj is also on the ‘Special One’s’ radar.
The Albanian international is under contract with Napoli until 2021 but the Mirror claim that deal has a clause that allows Hysaj to leave if a club agrees to pay £43.7m (€50m) between June 30 and July 15.
And the newspaper is citing reports coming out of Tuttosport that says Hysaj has now informed Napoli that a mystery club has made it clear they will trigger that release clause this summer.
No further details are provided over who the club in question is but it will only fuel speculation that Hysaj could be heading to the Premier League to either Arsenal or United.
