£30m+ Conte favourite already talking to friends about big Chelsea move

Roma’s midfield juggernaut Radja Nainggolan has already been talking to close friends about a potential move to Chelsea this summer and is open to the deal, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The Belgian is thought to be a key name on Antonio Conte’s transfer wish-list, with the Italy coach already drawing up recruitment plans ahead of his, what many believe is likely, switch to Stamford Bridge to succeed Guus Hiddink.

Nainggolan, valued at around £35m by Roma, is understood to be a star the Azzurri boss is a big fan of, and could become the bedrock of a new look midfield in the west of London.

And reports claim that the player himself is aware of Chelsea’s interest.

It’s believed that the 27-year-old is open to a move to the Premier League, and has even mulled it over with close friends.

Nainggolan is known for his combative edge, tireless work rate and fierce will to win.
