Napoli striker Dries Mertens linked with Arsenal, Bayern Munich

Napoli striker Dries Mertens is being linked with Arsenal.

Il Mattino says Arsenal have identified Mertens as a potential January signing as Mikel Arteta looks to shake things up next month.

Mertens is expected to be available for around £8.5m. Arsenal however could be battling Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich for his signature.

Arsenal will have an interesting month in January after Arteta's appointment.

The new boss was in the stands as Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Everton at Goodison Park.
