Chelsea apparently stay interested in protecting an offer for Napoli forward Dries Mertens

During the January transfer window, the Blues failed to protect a contract for the Belgium international, whose contract is because of end on June 30.

Nevertheless, it is recommended that Chelsea are prepared to make a fresh method for the 32- year-old, who has netted 121 goals from 309 appearances for Napoli in all competitions.

Belgian football professional Kristof Terreur informed The Transfer Window Podcast: “It was a fascinating call fromChelsea Since he might play in 4 positions, I think they desired him.

” He might play as a striker, as a false 9, he can play left wing, he can play on the right, he can play as a No10 He’s rather versatile and him and his missus have actually constantly liked London so if there was a possibility to move to London, they would not decline that.

” However whatever needed to be ideal and everybody needed to accept it and in this case there wasn’t even any sophisticated settlements so he didn’t promote it in completion.

“Let’s say €8m or €9m Chelsea wanted to spend on him – he can bag that now himself as a signing-on fee, or what Napoli still believe is that they can convince him to sign a new deal.”

Mertens has actually contributed 12 goals and 5 assists from 28 trips in Serie A and the Champions League this season.
