To explore a possible transfer to Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2020-21 season, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was officially in touch with Napoli forward Dries Mertens.
Mertens’s current contract with Napoli is supposed to expire at the end of June, and it is generally speculated that Belgium will try new pastures this summer.
Mertens is already heard to be linked with Manchester United, Roma, Arsenal and Monaco. Recently Chelsea also joined the queue.
Blues Manager Seveso has now made ‘contact’ with Mertens in the hope of winning the Belgian signature race ahead of next season, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 32-year-old scored 12 times and recorded six assists in 29 appearances for his Italian club this term. In total, the forward netted 121 goals in 311 outings for Gil Azzurri.
