Belgian ace reveals- “Yes, I talked to Conte. Chelsea really interested in me and want me”

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has confirmed he held talks with Antonio Conte about a potential move to Chelsea last summer.

The Premier League leaders reportedly failed with a £23 million offer for the Belgium international, with Roma refusing to budge from their £32m asking price.

‘Yes. I talked to him [Conte],’ Nainggolan told Sky Sports News.

‘They were really interested and wanted me over there. That’s all I can say.’

Nainggolan has cemented his place as one of Serie A’s best midfielders this season with nine goals and three assists for Roma, but the 28-year-old admits he remains open to joining the Premier League.

‘I watch it a lot,’ he said.

‘A lot of my team-mates play there. It’s the best league in the world.

‘We have to make choices in life. I am having a good season. When the window opens we will talk about it again.’
