Le10Sport: Barça are interested in signing Elseid Hysaj

Barça have joined the list of teams that are tracking Albanian defender Elseid Hysaj.

The 22-year-old was the undisputed starter for Napoli at right-back last season, making 43 appearances in total.

Hysaj's versatility has seen him line-up at left-back on certain occasions, presenting a good option for Luis Enrique should Jordi Alba be unavailable for selection.

The press ensures that the Blaugrana's interest has come after Atletico Madrid and Arsenal monitored the player in several games. In the case of the Gunners, Arsene Wenger's team had an initial bid of 19 million euros rejected.

Dani Alves' transfer to Juventus has shaken the transfer market for full-backs and clubs like Barça and Paris Saint-Germain are already searching for new talent.

The main drawback over Hysaj is that he's already in advanced negotiations with Napoli to extend his contract, thus raising his market value considerably.
