Belgium and Napoli forward Dries Mertens has expressed his desire to work with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri once again.
The duo worked together during Sarri’s days at Napoli and provided a formidable partnership as Mertens was a part of a top three with Callejon and Insigne which terrorized Europe.
The player is a huge fan of Sarri and has claimed one day he might work with the Italian again. However, Mertens is in no rush to leave Napoli as he is enjoying life under Ancelotti as well but has refused to rule out a reunion with Sarri in a year’s time at Stamford Bridge.
“I love it here,” he told The Times. “But maybe in one year, I’m free, so maybe you never know, maybe Sarri is going to call me. We will see.”
Chelsea have started off brilliantly with life under Sarri with wingers Eden Hazard and Willian enjoying a lot more freedom and license but their frontmen have failed to keep up with them with both Giroud and Morata falling short of expectations.
With Mertens becoming a free agent in the near future, we might actually see the Belgian at Stamford Bridge under Sarri giving a new edge to the Blues’ attack.
