Chelsea drop Nainggolan interest, ready to scupper Everton and Spurs for another Belgium star


Radja Nainggolan may not be the easiest name to pronounce, though the tenacious Belgian has been one of the stories of the transfer window so far. 

The will-he-won’t-he saga he appears to have over a move to Chelsea has had the Blues in the Transfer Tavern reading up all about him, though reports from Italy suggest the deal could now really be off.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the West Londoners are ready to switch their attentions from the Roma star to his international teammate, Axel Witsel.

The Zenit St. Petersburg star has been touted as a target for the likes of Everton and Spurs recently, as his four-year stint in Russia looks to be coming to an end.

He would provide a cheaper alternative to Nainggolan, while boasting many of the same attributes.

With just a year to go on his contract with the Russian titans, Witsel could become one of Antonio Conte’s first signings.
