Napoli star Dries Mertens has been linked with a move to Chelsea since January 2020 when the London club reportedly missed out on the Belgian despite making a sound offer.

One of the reasons why the move collapsed was because Mertens wanted to become Napoli's all-time leading scorer, a feat he's yet to accomplish as he's currently tied with Marek Hamsik on the chart.

According to latest report by Belgian publication HLN, Chelsea are still interested in Dries Mertens and have been in contact with the player but the 32-year-old striker still dreams to leave Naples as the club's leading scorer.

Mertens, whose contract expires at the end of the summer is seen by Chelsea as a very important addition to the squad as he can play as a striker, attacking midfielder and a winger.
