- Albania defender Elseid Hysaj emerges top transfer target for Chelsea boss Sarri
- The 24-year-old has been in fine form for his Italian League side this campaign
- Sarri's men suffered a disappointing defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is reportedly planning to sign £45 million rated Napoli star Elseid Hysaj.
The Italian born tactician is not satisfied with the Blues sluggish performance in their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium over the weekend.
It was a sweet revenge for the Gunners after Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny scored a goal each in the first half to claim maximum win at home.
Last weekend's defeat was the club's fourth in the Premier League this campaign as they currently sit fourth on the log with 47 points after 23 matches.
SunSport however reports that captain Cesar Azpilicueta could be in trouble at the Stamford Bridge with the impending arrival of Hysaj anytime soon.
The Spaniard has struggled for form under Sarri at the right back position, while Hysaj has blossomed into one of Europe’s finest full-backs during his time under Sarri at Napoli.
Meanwhile, the Blues are hoping to sign the player on loan at the initial stage before making the deal permanent next summer.
The Sun reports that Napoli are only interested in a permanent deal, with Carlo Ancelotti currently preferring Kevin Malcuit and Nikola Maksimovic at right-back.

Having signed Jorginho and also hired Maurizio Sarri from Napoli, the Blues are now ready to go to Italy in January 2019 for the signature of Elseid Hysaj.
According to Calciomercato, the West Londoners are in talks with the Serie A side as they look to lure the Albanian international to the Premier League.
