In recent, Chelsea have identified Dries Martens as the best solution to their goal delivery problem. The club have been looking for a potential striker who will partner with Tammy Abraham next season after both Oliver Giroud and Michy Batshuayi have failed to impress under Frank Lampard. But if the club do sign Mertens, what are the benefits Chelsea will receive from the player?
Reports from Italy suggest that Chelsea have already launched a bid to secure the Belgian's signature. Chelsea have failed to find the rightful replacement for Diego Costa after the Spanish left for Atletico Madrid back in 2018. Recently, The Blues have lost hope in signing Luka Jovic from Real Madrid and it will be a good luck for them if they successfully manage to sign the Belgian from Napoli.
With the experience he have in football, Mertens seems to be the best striker to solve Chelsea's goal problems as well as helping to improve the young talents that Chelsea have now. At the age of 32, I think the young talented boys such as Bojan and Abraham will learn a lot from him. He has strength and he will help in putting much pressure at the opponent's goal post.
The 32 years old who joined Napoli from PSV Eindhoven back in 2013 have impressed Chelsea due to his ability to create chances and score goals. Since his arrival at the San Paolo Stadium, Mertens have featured in 226 games and scored a total of 90 goals in return for The Parthenopeans. He has helped Napoli win Copa Italia in season 2013/14 and Supercoppa Italiana in 2014.
