Roma still want Mertens

There continue to be reports that Roma are trying to buy Dries Mertens from Napoli, but the asking price is €35m plus bonuses.

According to La Repubblica, the proposal is more than a mere idea.

It seems as if the Belgium international will return to his old wide attacking role anyway under Carlo Ancelotti and would have the same position for Eusebio Di Francesco’s Roma.

Mertens had a release clause worth €28m, but it was valid only for clubs outside of Italy and has already expired.

It is no secret in Italy that Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is a very tough negotiator and the English media are learning that too over the last few weeks.

Sarri is still under contract, the €8m release clause has expired and talks continue to free him before Chelsea can sack Antonio Conte and appoint the chain-smoking tactician.
