Published on: 01 April 2020

Inter Milan have reportedly moved to the front of the queue in the race to snap up Dries Mertens from Napoli on a free deal at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old will be out of contract this summer and it comes as a blow to Premier League trio Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Inter are ready to offer him a bumper deal to move to the San Siro, according to Calciomercato.

They claim an £85,000-a-week contract is on the table for the Belgian forward as Antonio Conte looks to further bolster his squad.

The report states that an £85,000-a-week contract is on the cards for the Belgian international, with Antonio Conte looking to bolster his squad even further.

Napoli look set to miss out on Champions League qualification next season and currently lie nine points shy of fourth placed Atalanta.

Mertens has remained in fine form despite a difficult campaign in Naples, and is the club's joint topscorer with 12 goals.

He scored Napoli's goal in their 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash in February.

Arsenal, Chelsea and United have been keeping tabs on the Belgium hotshot and looked at a potential deal in January.

Chelsea came close but could not get a deal over the line, forcing Olivier Giroud to stay at Stamford Bridge.
