Chelsea are set to miss out on signing Napoli's frontman Dries Mertens after the Belgian agreed to extend his contract with Napoli.


Mertens was close to joining Chelsea in January but decided to stay and help Napoli, and also become the club's all-time goal scorer.

According to the latest report by Italian-based publication La Repubblica, Mertens has reached an agreement with Napoli over a new two-year deal and the player will soon sign the new contract with the club expected to make an announcement later this month.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wanted Mertens as a replacement for Olivier Giroud who was ready to join Inter Milan in January but the move didn't go through in the end.
