Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are loving this season so far but look set to receive a setback in their pursuit of Radja Nainggolan, according to prominent Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.
The Blues are currently six points clear at the top of the Premier League as we reach the half-way point of the season this weekend and if they can have a second half anywhere near as good as this one, they’ll be champions.
It looks as though, too, that they’ll be aiming to bring in new players to bolster their challenge further in January but one such player – the Belgian Nainggolan – is unlikely to be coming in.
Our landlord thinks Nainggolan is a class player and would certainly make Chelsea even more formidable.
He’s got power and decent pace whilst he can tackle and shoot making him an all-round top asset – one the Blues could have really done with.
How big a blow will missing Nainggolan be, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
