Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti isn't expected to see Dries Mertens until October.

Mertens is recovering from a shoulder surgery and Il Mattino reports he has not started the rehabilitation.

As such, the striker isn't expected to see action for at least another two months.

The 34 year-old's contract with Napoli expires next summer and he is fielding interest from Inter Miami of MLS.

However, his deal does include a 12 month option.
