Chelsea Intensify Chase To Sign Powerful Box-To-Box Midfielder



Radja Nainggolan

Chelsea have reportedly renewed their interest in Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.

Reports in the Times newspaper claims that the Blues will make a take-it or leave offer for the midfielder next month after missing out on him during the last summer transfer window.

Antonio Conte is keen to bring in a new central midfielder in the winter window as replacement for Oscar who has joined Shanghai SIPG.

Although, Nainggolan had earlier debunked reports that he will be moving in January.

‘I’d rather stay at Roma until the end of the season,’ Nainggolan told Fan magazine.

‘There are no reasons to leave at the moment.’

Despite his latest comments, the Blues are said to be keen on their efforts to lure him to the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea has also shown interest in Sevilla ace Steven Nzonzi following reports that the Frenchman wants a Premier League return but will have to contest with Manchester city who are confident of signing the former Stoke city midfielder but both sides hav been told to meet his £25.5million release clause.

It is believed that Roma may demand for an astronomical amount for Nainggolan which be a stumbling for Chelsea in the bid to sign the Belgium international due to the UEFA financial fair play rules.
