BongDa.com.vn Senior leaders of Serie A representatives update on the contract situation of the star that the Gunners keep an eye on.

At the last winter market, Arsenal set a goal to strengthen the attack force. Dusan Vlahovic was identified as a target of the Gunners , unfortunately the north London giant could not beat Juventus in the race to own the signature of the Serbian striker.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving to Barcelona, ​​and Alexandre Lacazette’s contract due to expire when the 2021/22 campaign ends, it is likely that Arsenal will continue to plan to recruit attackers in the summer transfer market.

The Gunners are believed to have placed Napoli’s Dries Mertens  in their sights since last year. The Belgian player is a famous attacking star in Serie A in particular and in Europe in general, with 242 goals and 180 assists throughout his career.

Cristiano Giuntoli – Director of Football at Napoli – said: “We’ve an option to extend Mertens current contract until June 2023

Potential Arsenal target.

Mertens’ current contract with Napoli is about to expire and, quoted by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, San Paolo home team director Cristiano Giuntoli updated the situation: “We have the option of extending our current contract. Dries stay until June 2023. Napoli will decide with Dries. We will meet at the end of the season to make a decision on his future .”

If Napoli do not renew with Mertens, Arsenal can bring the 34-year-old back to the Emirates on a free transfer. However, the Gunners will have to compete with Tottenham Hotspur – the club Voetbal24 said also wants to own Mertens.
