According to Daily Mail, the Blues have made a late move for Napoli’s Belgium striker Dries Mertens as the club considers attacking options to sign before the transfer window closes on Friday.

Mertens’ contract at Napoli runs out at the end of the season but Chelsea are exploring whether a deal can be done now.

The Blues believe Mertens can be signed this January for just £6 million and have contacted Napoli over a move for the 32 year old.

The Belgian international scored 16 league goals for Napoli last season and has scored 9 goals in all competitions this season.
