Dries Mertens is on the verge of bidding farewell to Napoli according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.

The Belgian national team attacker’s contract with the club is due to expire at the end of this season and Napoli are growing increasingly pessimistic about their chances of keeping a hold of him.

Napoli have offered the 32-year-old a contract extension but the player is seemingly all set to depart and has a number of other clubs vying for his signature.

Inter and Chelsea have all been linked with the former PSV Eindhoven player, who is Napoli’s joint top goalscorer in club history, with Newcastle being said to be preparing a big offer for the player.

Mertens joined the Stadio San Paolo club back in the Summer of 2013 and has made 311 appearances across all competitions since, in which he has scored 121 goals and provided 73 assists.

This season he has made 29 appearances, in which he has scored 12 goals and provided six assists.
