Everton should consider making an audacious swoop for Napoli right-back Elseid Hysaj in January.
The Albania international is supposedly being targeted for a reunion by Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.
As reported by Italian publication Calciomercato, Sarri is ready to hurry a move through for the star amidst worries about a potential transfer embargo.
Apparently negotiations are already underway between the Blues and the player’s representatives.
Sarri is understood to want to move Davide Zappacosta on, with the Italian having failed to impress in England so far after being signed by Antonio Conte last year.
With Chelsea being managed by Sarri they are surely in a good position to secure a deal for Hysaj, but Everton should definitely make a rival offer for the player.
Hysaj would be a brilliant Coleman replacement
Hysaj is undoubtedly one of the best in his position in Serie A.
He’s been with Napoli since 2015 and has already made 153 appearances in all competitions having been a mainstay in the side the whole time.
He has been wonderfully consistent and is still just 24 years of age.
He would be an amazing signing for Everton, who should really be thinking about life after Seamus Coleman.
The Republic of Ireland international simply isn’t the same player these days. Unfortunately it seems as though the double leg break he suffered in 2017 has really hindered him.
He isn’t the same marauding full-back of a few seasons ago, and it would probably be wise for the Toffees to start considering alternatives.
Hysaj would be expensive. He does have a £44 million release clause, but there could be room for negotiation and Everton do tend to get many years’ service out of their full-backs, meaning he could be good value.
