Inter look to Mertens

Inter are working on a plan to bring Dries Mertens to the club next summer, according to reports.

The Belgian is out of contract at the San Paolo in June, and Tuttosport states that the Nerazzurri are pondering on the idea of whether to make an approach for the 32-year-old.

Coach Antonio Conte is seeking another striker and with Alexis Sanchez returning to Manchester United in the summer, Inter are looking to Mertens to fill the gap left by Sanchez.

Chelsea's Olivier Giroud is another option, but Conte would like the Frenchman in now, as opposed to waiting to next summer.

It looks unlikely that Mertens will renew with Napoli, as the clubs continue to wrangle over a contract extension.

The Belgian joined the Partenopei in the summer of 2013.
