Belgium international rules out Arsenal or Liverpool switch


Napoli winger Dries Mertens will snub offers to feature in next season's Premier League to stay at Napoli.

The 28-year-old is a target for Arsenal, Liverpool and Internazionale with the Nerazzurri having their £5m offer for the player rejected by the Partenopei.

But he insists that he will work hard to help Napoli achieve their objectives next season.

"I'm not leaving Napoli," he told

"We are working hard to achieve our objectives. I still have three years of contract and I'm not leaving.

"I love to play for this team, the Napoli fans want me to play for their team. Our job is now to learn the formation [of new coach Maurizio Sarri] because small things could make a difference.

"I'm not sure how far Napoli can go [next season] but we're here to work extremely hard."
