Will Sarri call Mertens?

Napoli forward Dries Mertens has hinted he would relish the opportunity to link up with Maurizio Sarri again, after enjoying his time under the Italian in Napoli.

The Belgian has banged in 10 goals in just 12 stars for the Serie A outfit this season, although he couldn’t find a crucial goal at Anfield as Carlo Ancelotti’s men crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool.


Ahead of the 1-0 defeat from the Reds, Mertens discussed his future and suggested he would be open to moving to Chelsea. ‘I love it here,’ the 31-year-old 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.’ Mertens gave an intriguing insight into life under the Chelsea boss and branded him as ‘crazy’. ‘Sarri does not have an off button,’ he added.


‘I think he sleeps one hour a night and he is always thinking about football.


‘Maybe because he had less time because he arrived late in the game and he is playing catch-up? I learnt a lot from him.


‘The thing I loved most about him is that you feel you are playing with 12 not 11. He puts the line very high so the strikers feel the midfielders are close.


‘I’m sure now Sarri is learning things about London. He knows so many facts, he’s crazy but interesting.’
