"Conte has always wanted to sign me" - Euro 2016 star confirms Chelsea approach


Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has confirmed that Premier League side Chelsea are trying to sign him.

As confirmed last week, manager Antonio Conte is an admirer of the Belgium international having tried to sign him when in charge of Juventus.

But the 28-year-old insists he is happy in Italy.

"They want to strengthen and moreover you have a coach like Conte who has always wanted to sign me", Nainggolan told Belgian magazine Nina.

"There has been contact between the two clubs, but as long as there is no agreement reached, I'll stay well out of it.

"Chelsea are a great team and it's good to be appreciated by them.

"I am very happy at Roma. They appreciate what I do for the club, everyone likes me as a player and a person, so that is very important to me.

"I lead a good life here and there is a nice balance between my football and my family life. It would be a very difficult choice to leave Italy after 11 years."
