Mertens agent on Napoli rumour

The agent of Dries Mertens has confirmed Napoli as a possible destination for the PSV Eindhoven player.

The winger has been strongly linked with the Azzurri and a switch may be on the horizon for the 26-year-old.

“Napoli would be an excellent experience for him,” representative Soren Lerby is quoted as saying by Nieuwsblad.

“It would be a new country for him, a new experience and he will also be able to play in the Champions League.”

The attacker, a Belgium international, will reportedly cost €9.5m. PSV signed him in June 2011 after impressing during a two-year spell with Utrecht.

The Stadio San Paolo outfit finished the 2012-13 campaign in second place in Serie A.
