Manchester United have contacted Napoli about a potential deal to sign Elseid Hysaj this summer, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

The Red Devils have been linked with a number of different right-backs since the Premier League season reached its conclusion last month.

Manchester United have been credited with an interest in Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier and PSV’s Denzel Dumfries.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is thought to be eager to bolster his options at full-back after Ecuador international Antonio Valencia left Manchester United on a free transfer this summer.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol has now claimed that Manchester United have made contact with Serie A outfit Napoli about Albanian right-back Hysaj.

Solhekol wrote on Twitter: “Sky Italy: Manchester United have contacted Napoli about right back Elseid Hysaj. Atletico Madrid also interested.”

The 25-year-old has established himself as one of the best right-backs in Serie A over the past four seasons at the Naples outfit.

The Albanian defender has made 173 appearances in all competitions but Hysaj has failed to score a competitive goal for Napoli.

Manchester United manager Solskjaer is thought to be eager to improve his Red Devils squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

The 20-time English champions finished outside the Champions League qualification spots last term to condemn the Red Devils to a season in the Europa League.
