Napoli striker Dries Mertens can't guarantee staying

Napoli striker Dries Mertens says new contract talks are yet to get underway.

The 35 year-old's current deal expires this month.

Mertens said, "I want to make the right choice. I want to find a good club. I'm calm, but I think a lot about my choice.

"I thought I'd stay at Napoli, it's strange that they waited so long.

“Regarding the contract extension at Napoli, I haven't heard from anyone yet. I hope in the coming days or weeks to let you know."
