While Inter Milan are firmly in the driver’s seat, it appears that Chelsea are still in the race for Dries Mertens.

According to Goal, the Napoli forward has still not given Inter any confirmation about their offer, and that is giving the Blues renewed hope that a deal can yet be completed.

Like Lampard, Antonio Conte is also a big fan of the striker and wanted to sign him at Chelsea as well. However, due to the increased demand, Mertens is taking his sweet time in deciding his future destination simply because he can afford to.
