Dries Mertens worried as Napoli stall contract talks

Dries Mertens is still waiting for a new contract offer from Napoli.

The veteran striker comes off contract at Napoli next week.

Sportitalia says Mertens wants to stay with Napoli, but so far no new contract has arrived or even really been discussed.

The Belgian forward is anxious and he's aware that only a week sits between now and being a free agent.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis has made it clear that he wants to cut the wage bill and this desire could see Mertens leave on a free and Kalidou Koulibaly sold.
