Dries Mertens is the latest player linked with a move to Chelsea as Lampard continues to find a way to improve his toothless attack.

Chelsea reportedly wanted to sign PSG's Edinson Cavani or AC Milan's krzysztof Piatek as a replacement for want-away striker Olivier Giroud.

However, with Cavani is only interested in a move to Atletico Madrid and Piatek close to completing a move to Hertha Berlin, Chelsea have no choice but to refresh their interest in Napoli's Belgium star Dries Mertens who has 6 months left in his contract.

According to a reliable Belgian outlet, Het Laatste Nieuws (HLN), Chelsea had earlier wanted to sign Mertens on a free contract in the summer but the failure to sign their January targets have pushed them to accelerate the deal for Mertens.

The report by HLN also stated that the 32-year-old wants to complete his contract at Naples and has his eyes set on becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer.

Chelsea are currently pushing to make the deal happen before the transfer window closes, according to latest report by Sky Sports.

It's hugely uncertain if Chelsea will have their way and complete the transfer but the club will continue to push until the last minute as they are running out of time and targets.

At the moment, it's Mertens or burst for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
