Chelsea supporters have urged their club to sign AS Roma’s Radja Nainggolan after speculations emerged the Serie A clubs will listen to offers for the midfielder this summer.
Nainggolan has been heavily linked with a move to away from Roma in recent summers to both Chelsea and FA finalist Manchester United.
Although, it’s believed Roma are considering the sale of the midfielder, GianlucaDiMarzio.com now claim the club are willing to part ways with the midfielder, and have already opened talks with Inter Milan who are also said to be keen on his signing.
But Nainggolan is unlikely to favour a move to Milan should he leave Roma this summer, having previously spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League one day.
Roma would prefer not selling to fierce rival so a move to England could be a possibility. The news of Nainggolan joining Chelsea will come as a huge boost to Chelsea and more especially to departing Antonio Conte, with the former Juve boss believed to be an admirer of the Belgian. It’s said Conte has tried luring him to Chelsea in the past.
Prior to the Blues’ Champions League encounter with the Serie A club, Conte spoke very highly of the Belgian revealing his quote how high he admirer him and rating him one of the best midfielders in the world.
“In the past, we tried to buy him but now Nainggolan is Roma’s player and I have great respect for him, great respect for Roma and great respect for my players.
“He’s a really good player, for me one of the best midfielders.”
Joining Chelsea would likely command an hefty fee as his current contract with Roma runs until 2021, and Roma doesn’t look set to listen to any offers short of £40 million ($53,131,433.88) for the highly rated midfielder.
Could Chelsea sanction £40 million ($53,131,433.88) for Radja Nainggolan this summer? Majority of Chelsea fans thought so and believe he could on his way to Stamford Bridge this summer.

His box to box style would suit kante a lot. He can take the offensive duties of kante(which bakayoko failed to do) and allow kante to be a pure destroyer then releaser.
