Chelsea boost as Napoli end interest in Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel

Axel Witsel

Napoli have ended their pursuit of Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel, according to reports in Italy.

Gianlucadimarzio are reporting that the Serie A outfit have failed to reach an agreement with Witsel’s employers Zenit St Petersburg for the sale of the Belgium defensive midfielder.

The same report states that Chelsea and Everton are still interested in the 27-year-old midfielder, who has made no secret of his desire to move to Serie A or the Premier League this summer.

Witsel was part of Marc Wilmots’s Belgium side that reached the last eight of the European championship before a 3-1 defeat by Wales despite being heavy favourites to progress to the semi-finals.
