Napoli set to sign Dries Mertens

Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport understands that Napoli are closing in on PSV Eindhoven midfielder Dries Mertens.

The same source has suggested the Azzurri have already agreed a €10 million fee for the talented footballer, with the player soon expected to put pen to paper on a long-term deal with San Paolo outfit.

Mertens can cover all three attacking midfield positions in  the 4-2-3-1 formation Rafael Benitez plans to use with Napoli, which makes him a perfect signing.

The 26-year-old joined PSV Eindhoven from Utrecht in the summer of 2011 and quickly proved he would be a great signing for the Dutch giants.

Mertens went on to score no less than 37 goals in 62 Eredivisie matches despite being mostly used as a winger.

Following two very successful seasons, during which he produced no less than 33 assists for his teammates, the Belgian will be given a chance to prove his worth at the biggest stage.
