Reports are out claiming that Chelsea are closing on a deal for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.
The Sun reported that the Blues have met with the player’s agent Remy Abbas and the Roman outfit’s sporting director Walter Sabatini.
A picture in Corriere Dello Sport appeared to capture the aftermath of a meeting between Chelsea officials and Abbas.
And respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said that Nainggolan will be Antonio Conte’s first transfer target as Blues boss.
Having managed Roma title-rivals Juventus, Conte – who was appointed on Monday – is well aware of the dangers Nainggolan poses to his opposition.
