Chelsea could miss one of their top goals this summer with Dries Mertens keeping an eye on a Serie A stay when his Napoli contract expires.
The Belgian international is said to be a major target on Stamford Bridge, but is also being sought by Inter and their former Blues boss Antonio Conte.
And according to Sky Sports Italia, the 33-year-old would prioritize a move to the San Siro over a shot in the Premier League.
