Belgian international Dries Mertens has put Liverpool on alert by discussing a potential move to the Premier League, according to talkSPORT.

The Napoli ace, who has enjoyed an impressive stint in Serie A, claims England's elite division 'would be a good challenge'.

The same report from talkSPORT suggests the Merseyside outfit have been interested in the dynamic winger for a couple of seasons, but it remains to be seen as to whether they will swoop for him anytime soon.

Despite hinting at a future move to the Premier League, the 28-year-old has admitted that he is in discussions over a renewal of his current contract at Stadio San Paolo. 

Speaking to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, the wide-man stated: "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."

Creativity key 

There's no doubt about it, securing the services of Mertens would prove to be a fine coup for Brendan Rodgers and Co. at Anfield. As Rodgers continues to change the dynamics of his squad, the Belgian ace would suit the club's style in their pursuit of long-term success. 

With the likes of Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho already starring for the club, Mertens would comfortably adapt to the surroundings at Anfield.

Of course, with the transfer window currently shut, the Liverpool chief will be hoping that his current crop of talented attacking players prove their credentials sooner rather than later.
