Napoli forward Dries Mertens admits he would be open to a move to the Premier League, putting Liverpool on red alert.
Napoli are looking to tie Mertens down to a new contract, despite him still having three years remaining on his current deal.
The 28-year-old has talked up the prospect of renewing terms at the Stadio San Paolo, but admits a Premier League switch could be a possibility.
The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent seasons.
And when asked about a possible move to Engand, Mertens told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws: "The Premier League would be a good challenge.
"I have a contract until 2018, but maybe other options will appear then.
"Last week we talked about the renewal, it's nice to know that the club is counting on you."
