Does Dries desert Napoli?

Dries Mertens received offers from China and the Premier League, but Adam Digby warns he won’t be the centre of attention there.

“Per il Napoli, segna con il numero quattordici… DRIES!” he bellows into the microphone. “MER-TENS!” comes the reply from the vociferous Stadio San Paolo crowd.

He even has his own little nicknames for the players.

The former Inter man was keen to shrug off the stereotype of the defensive minded Italian Coach, instead preferring to focus on ‘attacking football’.
