Tottenham interested in January swoop for Napoli star Dries Mertens

Tottenham are interested in signing Napoli attacker Dries Mertens in January, according to Il Mattino (h/t Calciomercato).

The Belgian has scored seven goals for Napoli this season and can play across the front-line.

Arsenal are also interested in a January move for the 32-year-old, who is a free agent at the end of the season (h/t Calciomercato).

Mertens is unlikely to be offered a new deal by the Serie A side after a revolt against orders from the club’s president (h/t Calciomercato).

The Belgian has been one of the top stars in Italy with 88 goals in Serie A for Napoli.

AC Milan, AS Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus are also keen on the 32-year-old (h/t Calciomercato).

Tottenham contact Mertens’ group

Spurs and Arsenal have already contacted the Belgian’s group in hopes of landing him (h/t Calciomercato).

Landing Mertens on a cut-price deal in January would be amazing and the Belgian still has a couple of quality years left.

However, he isn’t a long-term solution for our attack and we would need to find a replacement for him soon too.

Tottenham could do with more attacking talent joining in January as we have struggled for goals this season.

We have scored 18 goals in 12 Premier League games with Harry Kane having collected six of them so far.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
