Inter Back In For Napoli’s Dries Mertens
The forced stop of football has put Dries Mertens contract renewal with Napoli on the rocks and has allowed Inter to come back in for him according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Prior to football having to come to a halt due to the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, Mertens appeared destined to sign a contract extension with the Stadio San Paolo club but the current situation has put that on stand-by and has allowed Mertens a lot of time to think about his future.
Inter had shown an interest in bringing him in back in January and even made contact with his representatives to make their intentions clear but when it looked like Mertens was going to sign on again with Napoli, Inter cooled their interest but now they are back in for him as are Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.
This season the 32-year-old has notched 12 goals and six assists in 29 appearances across all competitions to date.
