Napoli, Chelsea or Inter for Mertens

Dries Mertens has a tough decision to make, as he could sign a new contract with Napoli or bow to the pressure from Chelsea and Inter.

The Belgium international will be a free agent at the end of the season and his future is up in the air.

Napoli have proposed a contract extension, which had seemed all but decided a couple of months ago, but was never signed.

Chelsea took the opportunity of the stall in progress and intermediary Vincenzo Morabito revealed this week that Frank Lampard is calling Mertens “almost every day.”

However, Calciomercato.com point out that Inter have been trying to sign Mertens for a year now and have never stopped their pursuit behind the scenes.

It would allow him to reunite with Belgium strike partner Romelu Lukaku, but he might feel awkward about playing for another Italian club after seven years at Napoli.
