The Blues hopes of signing Radja Nainggolan have been boosted after Roma informed the star midfielder he can now leave the club this summer
Mind you this is according to reports in Italy.
The Belgium international was in talks to sign for Chelsea last summer and personally spoke with Antonio Conte about a move to Stamford Bridge.
‘Yes. I talked to him [Conte],’ Nainggolan told Sky Sports News last month.
‘They were really interested and wanted me over there. That’s all I can say.
Nainggolan is said to be valued at around £35million.
According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport who claim the Serie A giants are willing to sell him to cover ‘costs’ this summer.
The Blues would have no problem whatsoever meeting that price and Conte is said to be handed around £150million to invest in his team again.
