Mertens & Callejon set for Napoli exits?

Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon are reportedly “very close” to leaving Napoli next year.

The pair’s contracts expire at the end of the season, and Tuttosport warns neither are ‘convinced’ by what Napoli are offering.

The newspaper explains Mertens had been tabled a four-year deal worth €4m a season, with the role of Bari team manager promised to him after he retires.

However, the 32-year-old would now be ‘especially’ looking in the direction of MLS after turning down the Partenopei’s proposal.
