​Chelsea manager Lampard directly contacts Napoli star Mertens over summer move


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has reportedly been in touch with their top summer target, Dries Mertens.

The veteran Belgian striker is wanted by the Blues as they seek to solve their number 9 issues.

Il Mattino claims Mertens is the top name on Chelsea's list as they seek a big name striker in the summer market.

Mertens has not renewed his deal with Napoli, and that means the club may be more open to a sale.

The 33-year-old would help bring on youngster Tammy Abraham at Chelsea, while providing the experience and guile their attack has missed since Eden Hazard left.

Chelsea boss Lampard recently started following Mertens on Instagram, even though he only follows 294 other people on the platform.
