Chelsea are still in talks with the lawyers of Napoli forward Dries Mertens according to Italian agent Vincenzo Morabito.

The Belgian has been linked with a move to Stamford since the Blues failed move to sign him January but Morabito believes that Chelsea are still in discussions to sign him in the summer.

“As far as I know Chelsea are continuing to deal with Mertens’ lawyers and it is no coincidence the Belgian has not yet renewed [his contract at Napoli],” he told Radio Marte, quoted by Calcio Napoli 24.

“I believe he will not renew. Chelsea really like him. He could have also gone there in January, but the fact that he didn’t go blocked our negotiation for Giroud’s exit”

The 32-year-old could be a direct replacement for either Olivier Giroud or Michy Batshuayi with one of them likely to leave the club in the summer.
