Napoli chief Giuntoli: Mertens contract talks continuing

Napoli chief Cristiano Giuntoli says they're not giving up on keeping hold of Dries Mertens.

The veteran striker comes off contract in June.

Giuntoli said: "We are talking to Dries' entourage, we hope for the best.

"He has given this club a great deal, so whatever decision he makes is fine.

“We're talking to his people, this is his home. If he decides to stay, we'll be very happy, and if he decides to leave, we'll salute him."
