Elseid Hysaj of Napoli could join Atletico Madrid in the summer ahead of the 2021/22 La Liga season.
Diego Simeone is rumored to be interested in signing a new right back in the coming months, amid growing concerns about Sime Vrsaljko’s long-term fitness following his ongoing knee injury struggles.
Despite the possibility of a new face at the Wanda Metropolitano, Simeone is keen to keep England star Kieran Trippier as his first choice, with Hysaj being considered as a back-up option.
The Albanian international has been linked with Los Rojiblancos on several occasions in the last two years, but the Serie A giants have previously rejected any transfer interest in the 27-year-old.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Hysaj has declined to extend his contract in Naples, which expires next month, and Simeone could pounce on the opportunity to sign him on a free transfer.
