Ghana's No. 1

Report – Ex-Napoli man rejects Juventus approach

Published on: 03 August 2022

Dries Mertens has rejected Juventus' transfer approach, according to reports.

The Belgian became one of the Bianconeri targets as they searched for a new frontman to become a backup to Dusan Vlahovic.

Juve remains keen on improving their squad, and they are struggling to re-sign Alvaro Morata.

This has forced them to consider alternative targets, and Mertens was one of them.

However, it was always going to be very tricky to add him to the squad because of his history with Napoli, and he has now turned down Juve's approach, according to Tuttojuve.

The Bianconeri will have to find another attacker who will be happy to join their squad, and the report suggests it might be Filip Kostic that joins them.
