Belgium and Napoli midfielder Dries Mertens says his agent talked with Chelsea about a possible move to the Premier League but remains adamant that he will stay at Napoli.
Mertens told Sky Sports: “Yes there was interest from Chelsea, and from other clubs also, but in my head there was never an intention to change clubs.”
“This season was really good. I am going to try and be even better next year.”
“Yes there is a buyout clause. But I’m happy at Napoli and I want to stay. I really like Italy. I am good there and they treat me good.”
