Inter could sign Napoli forward Dries Mertens on a free transfer during the summer transfer window.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that there are factors which could allow the Nerazzurri to reignite their pursuit of the 34-year-old from two summers ago.

Mertens’ current deal with the Partenopei is set to run out at the end of June, and it remains to be seen if he will agree an extension with the Neapolitan club.

Should the Belgian leave on a free transfer, he will be one of the main names on the Nerazzurri’s list of experienced, low-cost attacking options, along with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez.

With the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal, and Aleksandar Kolarov leaving in the summer, there will be room in Inter’s squad for a player of Mertens’ experience.

Moreover, a deal had looked to nearly in place to bring the forward to Inter two years ago before he changed directions and decided to stay at Napoli, and there could be the groundwork to agree a deal this time around.
