Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are gathered on the sofa awaiting the seemingly imminent news that Antonio Conte will be their new manager and they’ve been given an intriguing story to discuss today.
The Times states that Antonio Conte has advised Chelsea to target Roma’s midfield duo Miralim Pjanic and Radja Nainngolan, with the two international stars being eyed as potential signings by the Italian boss.
Chelsea’s struggles this season mean that a massive overhaul is expected this summer and Conte will be responsible for these changes, with many expected to come in and out of Stamford Bridge during the next transfer window.
Roma duo Pjanic and Nainggoland, 25 and 27 respectively, have proved themselves in the testing environment of the Serie A and on the international stage- and the duo could easily be lured to the Premier League, where financial benefits are far superior to those available on the continent.
Our landlord is a fan of both of these Roma players but he isn’t sure if both would fit into the squad, although he accepts that depends on who Conte is looking to offload.
Chelsea fans, how would Pjanic and Nainggolan fit into your side? Let us know in the comments below!
