Premier League trio chasing Dries Mertens

It looks like Napoli are going to lose one of their main stars this summer. Dries Mertens is, according to reports, unlikely to sign a new deal at Napoli before his contract ends. His current deal with the club is set to end on 30 June – or, in fact, a bit later, due to this whole chaos created by the coronavirus that has stopped football – and he could be leaving as a free agent.

This could be really good news for clubs interested in the Belgian, especially those in the Premier League. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, there are after all three Premier League clubs interested in his services. Their reports suggests that Mertens’ entourage could enter into talks with Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.

The Belgium international, now 32, joined Napoli in 2013 and has scored 121 goals for the club in all competitions, making him the record goalscorer in club’s history, but he might make a move to England late in his career.
