Cape Town - Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj will reportedly turn down the advances of Chelsea in favour of penning a new deal with the Serie A outfit.

Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to be reunited with the right-back at Stamford Bridge but it seems as if the 25-year-old has no intention of leaving the San Paolo just yet.

Hysaj's current deal is due to expire in 2021 and Corriere dello Sport claims his agent will meet with Napoli officials in the coming days to finalise a new deal.

The Albania international's decision to stick with Napoli will come as a big boost to the Italian outfit but they could still face a battle to keep hold of their star men this summer.

Defender Kalidou Koulibaly has been linked with a number of top European clubs and Dries Mertens has also been tipped to depart, although the Belgian forward stressed last week he isn't looking to leave Napoli.
