Emerging reports indicate that West London boss Maurizio Sarri is seeking to lure star player Dries Mertens away from Napoli so as to have him pen his signature with the Blues at the Stamford Bridge.

The West London boss and Dries Mertens once worked together at the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli and proved to be a success having scored 34 goals in 46 games in the 206/2017 season and later 22 goals in 49 games the following year.

So far, Dries Mertens has scored in total. 203 goals in 553 appearances which make it a massive reported to tempt the West London boss into having him at the club.

Suggestions are that talian Serie A side will have to do more if they must keep Dries Mertens at the club with interest for her growing stronger.

The Blues have got some negative situation in the team with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giround currently not in the best of form as they have failed to deliver goals.

The former Napoli boss is therefore keen to add more strength to his team as he hopes to challenge for the Premier League title as well as qualify for the Champions League next season.
