Hysaj Attracts Attention of Gattuso’s Valencia

Elseid Hysaj failed to convince Lazio in his debut season and he could leave this summer as Gennaro Gattuso’s Valencia register their interest.

The 28-year-old Albanian full back joined the Biancocelesti on a free transfer last summer after his contract expired with Napoli. He signed a four-year deal with the Roman club, but his first season was fairly disappointing, showing little of note.

As reported by La Repubblica (via LazioNews24), Gattuso’s Valencia are keen to make a move for Hysaj and are planning to send in a concrete offer at some point this week.

The Italian coach remembers the Albanian full back well from their time together at Napoli and he could be a helpful low-cost reinforcement as he starts a new adventure in Spain.

Last season, Hysaj made made 38 appearances across all competitions, for a total of 2609 minutes. In that time, he scored one goal, generally failing to produce much of anything and often losing his starting spot to Adam Marusic.
