Napoli striker Dries Mertens would prefer to join Inter over Juventus if he is to leave the Stadio San Paolo club in the coming months according to a report from Italian broadcaster SportMediaset.
The Belgian national team striker is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and it is uncertain as to whether or not he will remain at the Naples based outfit, who he has played his football for since 2013.
If he does not sign a contract extension with the Partenopei, who have reportedly offered him a two year contract extension with an annual salary of €4 million plus a €2 million signing on bonus, he would prefer to end up at Inter opposed to Juventus.
The report from the broadcaster goes on to explain that the reason for this is he does not want to betray the Napoli support by joining the Bianconeri. The report also does however warn that the chance to play under Maurizio Sarri could convince Mertens to join Juventus though.
This season the 32-year-old has made 29 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has score 12 goals and provided six assists.
