During last months transfer window Chelsea attempted to sign a forward at the request of Frank Lampard.
However, as we know, nothing transpired there, and Frank Lampard was left frustrated.
The last-minute deal is what the Blues have become famous for, and this window saw a late pursuit of Napoli forward Dries Mertens.
It was a seemingly an impossible deal to complete as his club had no intention of selling him mid-season, even though it seems unlikely that he will sign a new agreement there and will become a free agent in the summer when his contract is up.
As reported by The Sun, Inter Milan have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Dries Mertens when he becomes a free agent in the summer.
Napoli have a huge match next week versus Barcelona in the Champions League knockout stages, and they will be pleased to have kept Dries Mertens in the squad for these exact type of games.
But he is free to agree on a pre-contract agreement with any other club from now, so it will be interesting to see how this one pans out.
