Chelsea failed to secure a late transfer for Napoli striker Dries Mertens despite the Belgian international having just six months left on his Napoli contract.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had been keen on strengthening Chelsea’s attacking options in January to boost the club’s chances of a top four finish.

After Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur revealed on Friday that Chelsea won’t be signing Mertens, Chelsea fans were absolutely devastated.

A Chelsea fan responded to the tweet: “Seriously what was the point in us appealing the ban if we wasn’t planning who to bring in? Seriously pointless move and a complete waste of time.. The summer better not be like this”.

While another wrote: “Nooooooooooo”.

Reports had claimed Mertens will join Inter Milan in the summer but Terreur also played down Inter Milan’s chances of signing Mertens.

A fan asked the Belgian football expert if Mertens will join Inter Milan in the summer and he replied: “Inter is now impossible”.
