Internazionale have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Napoli midfielder Dries Mertens, Calciomercato.com has reported.
The Belgium international is one of the many Napoli players expected to leave during the summer transfer window with Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini showing interest in the 28-year-old.
Last week, agent Soren Lerby confirmed that the future of the midfielder is uncertain.
"It was a tough season for Napoli," Lerby told Radio Crc.
"They crashed out early in the Champions League and came very close to winning the Europa League.
"And we all know what happened in the championship.
"We'll see what will happen now. There are a number of clubs showing interest in Dries but I cannot say anything at the moment.
"Napoli is going through changes, including a change of coach. Mertens is a very mature man, he knows exactly what he wants at this stage of his career.
"In all fairness I don't know if the problem is the club or the player, we will soon meet together to take a decision over the future of the lad."
