Dries Mertens

Reports are out claiming that Napoli winger Dries Mertens has put Premier League clubs on notice.

The Belgium international star admits he may reject a new contract offer from Napoli to leave him free to join an English club.

“The Premier League is a great regatta,” said Mertens to HLN.

“Therefore, I must think about what I want. The Premier League for example is a nice competition. Who knows, can I go there?

“My contract runs until 2018 and if I do not re-sign perhaps next summer there will be options?”

Mertens has been linked with Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle United and Tottenham in the past.
