Atletico Madrid look to Napoli's Elseid Hysaj

Atletico Madrid have identified Napoli full-back Elseid Hysaj as a potential replacement for Filipe Luis, report Diario AS.

Experienced Brazilian defender Luis is out of contract at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer and reports suggest he will leave Los Rojiblancos.

Jonny Castro is expected to return from his season-long loan return from Wolverhampton Wanderers but the future of Lucas Hernandez is also under doubt, with Marca reporting Bayern Munich looking to activate his €85m release clause.

The Albanian defender is comfortably in either full-back position and has been a regular fixture in Napoli’s side since his move from Empoli in 2015 – making 122 Serie A appearances in that time.

The 24-year-old’s release clause in Italy is reported to stand at €45m but he could be available for under that value.
