Chelsea are still chasing highly rated Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan as they look to begin their summer spending.
The ‘Ninja’ has had a fantastic season in Serie A and has attracted attention from a host of English clubs – none more than the Blues who are looking to reinforce after a dismal last campaign in which they finished 10th in the Premier League.
After last summer’s unsuccessful recruits – which included an hit-and-miss Pedro, a leaky Asmir Begovic and a misfiring Radamel Falcao – the signing of Nainggolan would be a step in the right direction for the club, who may struggle to attract big names this time out due to the lack of European football next campaign.
If a move for the Belgian international were to happen, it would almost certainly be after Euro 2016.
With only 10 days to go until the start of the tournament, alongside the difficulties in luring the £35 million rated 28-year-old to Stamford Bridge, incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will have to play the waiting game.
A good European Championship’s for the former Cagliari man however could see his value sky-rocket, and make securing his services all the more difficult.
With Chelsea’s financial power however, a move would certainly still be on the cards, so here is what our landlord at the Transfer Tavern thinks would be the pros and cons of the Ninja’s arrival in Southwest London ……..
