Arsenal line up sensational move for Napoli striker Dries Mertens

Arsenal are lining up a sensational move for Napoli striker Dries Mertens.

Sky Sports says the Gunners are making a push to bring the 33 year-old striker to England at the end of this season.

Mertens resisted a move to Chelsea last summer, choosing to sign a new dal with Napoli instead.

However, despite having a deal to 2022 now with the Azzurri, it's suggested Mertens wishes to seek "a new challenge" and is tempted by interest from Arsenal.

The Belgian has scored four goals and produced six assists in 13 Serie A games this season.
