Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could purportedly battle for the signature of Napoli forward Dries Mertens during this present summer’s transfer window.
The Belgium international signed another deal with the Italian giants last June, and he has been a regular during the 2020-21 campaign, making 30 outings in all competitions, scoring nine goals and eight assists in the process.
Notwithstanding, as indicated by Voetbal 24, the Serie A outfit are interested to move Mertens off their wage bill this summer.
The report asserts that North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both keen on bringing the 33-year-old to the Premier League in the impending market.
Dries Mertens has scored eight times and registered 7 assists in 21 Serie A appearances this term, however he has battled with an ankle issue during stages of the season.
The Belgium attacker has overseen 134 goals and 86 assists in 352 outings for Napoli since joining the club from PSV Eindhoven in 2013.
