Chelsea transfer boost with Dries Mertens wanting move to London with Napoli star available on free this summer – The Sun

CHELSEA target Dries Mertens is interested in a move to London, according to reports.

Frank Lampard was interested in signing the Napoli star in January, as the Blues went after another centre forward.

A deal failed to materialise, with Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi subsequently staying put at Stamford Bridge.

But with Mertens' contract with the Serie A side set to expire on June 30, Chelsea are likely to go after the Belgian once again.

And their hopes of finally landing him have been given a boost, with the Mail claiming that a move to London interests the 32-year-old.

The coronavirus pandemic is set to have a huge impact on the summer's window, although a player of Mertens' quality available on a free transfer is set to become an even more desirable target.

Chelsea are believed to be targeting a striker, centre-back and left-back.
