Chelsea To Bid €45 million For Belgian Roma Midfielder

ROME, ITALY - FEBRUARY 21: Radja Nainggolan of Roma (wanted by Chelsea and Man United) in action during the Serie A match between AS Roma and US Citta di Palermo at Stadio Olimpico on February 21, 2016 in Rome, Italy.

Reports emerging from Italy suggest that Chelsea are expected to offer €45 million for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.

It is not the first time the London club have tried to sign the Belgian international, having previously had an offer thought to be in the region of €35 rejected as new boss Antonio Conte seeks to bolster the club’s midfield ahead of next season.

The news will be music to the ears of Chelsea fans, who will be hoping Nainggolan’s Belgian team mates Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard will convince him to make the move to London.

The Stamford Bridge faithful last year saw their team slump to a scarcely believable 10th and feel the club needs to spend big this Summer.

The string of rumours, some more credible than others, linking big name superstars to both Manchester clubs has left many teams fearful of being left behind but the thought of Nainggolan joining Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas in the Blues’ midfield will certainly go some way to easing their fears.

during the intermational friendly match between Belgium and Italy at King Baudouin Stadium on November 13, 2015 in Brussels, Belgium.

The potential signing is certainly the most credible big name signing Chelsea have been linked with, as endless rumours connecting the club with Juventus striker Alvara Morata and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly have yet to be really substantiated.

Perhaps the signing of Nainggolan will kick-start a productive transfer window for the club.
