Napoli star Dries Mertens has confirmed there was interest from Chelsea over a summer move but he insists the interest from Chelsea never turned his head.

The 30-year-old Belgium international scored 28 goals in 35 Serie A games in the just concluded season.

“Yes there was interest [from Chelsea], and from other clubs also, but in my head there was never an intention to change clubs,” Mertens told Sky Sports.

“This season was really good. I am going to try and be even better next year.

“Yes there is a buyout clause. But I’m happy at Napoli and I want to stay. I really like Italy.

“I am good there and they treat me good.”
