The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Arsenal.
The Daily Star reported on the weekend that Arsenal were toying with the idea of launching a £15 million bid for the 22-year-old Albanian defender.
That being said, his representative Mario Giuffredi has suggested that joining the Gunners does not represent much of a forward step for his client, who joined the Serie A side from Empoli last summer.
Asked by Radio CRC what he made of Arsenal's interest, Giuffredi said: “I consider this to be like Napoli, not better," he's quoted as saying by Inside Futbol. “Napoli have become one of the most important clubs in Europe.”
Arsenal, as it stands, cannot offer the youngster that much more than Napoli. Both clubs will compete in the Champions League and manager Arsene Wenger is unlikely to offer him mega wages considering he is relatively unproven.
Plus, Hysaj, who can play left-back and right-back, would have a hard time breaking into the North Londoners' best XI by virtue of Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin's proficiency in both positions.
They do need cover in both roles, however, and perhaps Wenger views him as someone who can challenge Bellerin in time.
