Napoli forward Dries Mertens might be among the greatest names readily available in the transfer market ahead of next summertime. The Belgium international is not eager to extend his existing Napoli offer, and all indications point towards him being a complimentary representative in a couple of more months.
There should not be a scarcity of teams aiming to sign him. In spite of the truth Mertens currently past the 30- year-old barrier, he stays more than efficient in carrying out at a high level. Based upon current rumours, his more than likely location would be the English Premier League.
As the Mail reported previously today, Chelsea, Toolbox and Manchester United are all eager to participate in a bidding war to sign the 32- year-old. Mertens might have left Napoli last months, however he wishes to leave the Partenopei side as the club’s all-time leading scorer. He is simply 3 objectives except breaking Marek Hamsik’s tally.
As things stand now, which Premier League club would match Mertens finest? Let’s learn.
Let’s start with Chelsea. The Blues were eager to sign a striker in the January transfer window and had a ₤ 6million quote for the Belgian turned down. There’s not much of a fit for him at Stamford Bridge. Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham won’ t go anywhere. They are close to sign Hakim Ziyech, and they likewise include Willian and Michy Batshuayi as forward risks. It would be hard to discover playing time for him.
The exact same opts for Toolbox. With both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette blazing a trail, plus Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli on the wings, the 32- year-old would likewise be predestined for a bench function at Toolbox. The Gunners may be inexpensive next summertime, nevertheless, so they might get sn edge there. As long as they can manage his incomes, obviously.
The situation is a little various at Manchester United. The Red Devils need a striker to release Rashford in a much deeper function and Anthony Martial on the left wing. They obtained Odion Ighalo at the due date, however he will leave the side at the end of the season. Mertens would be a substantial upgrade from other alternatives and might form a fascinating trio with Martial and Rashford all altering position. Mertens might even coach child Mason Greenwood.
There’s no concern Mertens suffices to play in the EPL. It stays to be seen which side he will wear for. Right now, all indications point towards him playing on English soil in 2020-21 That appears to be the very best action for his profession.
