Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wanted to bring Elseid Hyasaj to the London club but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis blocked the move, the player's agent has revealed. 

The Blues boss, who joined Chelsea in the summer took Jorginho with him to the Stamford Bridge and also wanted to sign the Napoli right back but the move was blocked. Agent Mario Guiffredi has revealed Sarri wanted to poach more Napoli players but he wasn't allowed. Hyasaj has since been slammed for his poor performances in the early weeks of the current campaign and his agent defended him. 

"Those who criticize him probably never make mistakes, but the rest of us are mere mortals. Without that clause, he probably would have gone to Chelsea this summer," said Mario. 

"People forget that he was one of the best two or three full-backs in Europe last season. Then it just takes two or three matches for him to become a donkey. I always say to let everyone talk and then respond on the pitch," he added. 

Carlo Ancelotti was hired as Napoli coach following the sacking of Sarri but appointment at Chelsea was delayed because De Laurentiis refused to release him.
