Popular Italian transfer expert Vincenzo Morabito has revealed that Chelsea are leading the race for Napoli striker Dries Mertens despite renewing Olivier Giroud's contract.

Morabito told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli that Chelsea manager is in constant contact with the Belgian, and he could see him joining Chelsea.

“Mertens had originally said he wanted to stay at Napoli, but then his lawyer started offering him to various international clubs, meaning something changed between the player and the Azzurri,” he said.

“I know this because I was working on the Olivier Giroud issue when he was meant to leave Chelsea in January, with a lucrative contract lined up for Mertens”

“Chelsea have now extended Giroud’s contract as a precaution, but they are very interested in Mertens and Lampard is calling him almost every day. I can see Mertens going to Chelsea.”

Lampard wants to further improve his attack with Dries Mertens but will face competition from rivals, including Liverpool who are also interested in the player.
