According to reports, Chelsea could sign Napoli star Dries Mertens.
Mertens has worked with Maurizio Sarri before Italian coach moved to London. Belgium international has recently hinted he would like to work again with his ex-coach.
Mertens told The Times:”Sarri does not have an off button. I think he sleeps one hour a night and he is always thinking about football. Maybe because he had less time because he arrived late in the game and he is playing catch-up? I learnt a lot from him.
I love it here [at Napoli] but maybe in one year, I’m free [from my contract], so maybe you never know, maybe Sarri is going to call me. We will see.” he added.
Mertens as scored 10 goals in 19 matches this season. His contract with Napoli is expiring in summer of 2020, however, Chelsea could go for a move sooner, as Blues are challenging for Top – 4 place in EPL.
