While the fight for second place between Roma and Napoli remains wide open, a direct Champions League qualification spot is not the only thing being worked on: Napoli is in fact working on renewing the contract of Dries Mertens.
The last hurdle is that of the Exit clause: The Belgian would like for it to not be too high, allowing him a way out if things were to go south. As of now, the striker class of 1987 would like to remain with Maurizio Sarri in Naples. The Italian coach however has an 8 million Euro clause, which leaves a possibility of him leaving. For that reason, Mertens would want a reasonable exit clause: A sort of way out in the case Napoli and Sarri would part ways.
