Napoli have identified Everton’s Moise Kean as a player they could bring in to replace Dries Mertens according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset.

Mertens contract is due to expire at the end of next month and Napoli have offered him a contract extension but having grown tired of waiting for him to decide his future they have given him a seven day deadline.

The Stadio San Paolo club are interested in former Juventus forward Kean, who has struggled in his first season in the Premier League and could well do a swap deal with the Toffees who like Napoli duo Allan and Hirving Lozano.

Napoli are the latest club to have come into links with Kean, who has also been linked with moves to both Inter and Roma in recent weeks.

The 20-year-old has made 26 appearances across all competitions to date this term, in which he has scored one goal and tallied two assists.
