Chelsea are going to fight against Juventus for Belgium international midfielder Radja Nainggolan, according to The Daily Mirror

Antonio Conte wants the ASRoma star as one of his first recruits, with Jon Obi Mikel and Nemanja Matic ready to leave Stamford Bridge.

Nainggolan, who is valued at around £25million, mocked Bianconeri last summer saying: ‘I don’t think it’s necessary to go into a star-studded team to win a trophy. I am in a great side and I want to win with ASRoma. For me it’s better to win one trophy at Roma than 10 at Juventus.’

This could be an advantage for Blues.

The versatile midfielder has previously played with Club Brugge, Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg and according to the Italian rumours he could be a potential signing by Antonio Conte, who is expected to be announced as the next Blues boss in a short while.

But Roberto Mancini remain reluctant to sell a player who they signed only last summer in a €16million transfer, then CalcioMercato.com claim Chelsea may have to pay as much as £30million.

Simone Zaza, who joined Juventus from Sassuolo last summer, has been called up by Antonio Conte for Italian international squad and the Chelsea’s potential new boss seems really keen on him.

For this reason, Tuttosport claim that the Italian manager would sign Zaza to revamp Blues’ attack, but they need to start negotiations as soon as possible, given that after this summer the value of the Italian striker could be highly increased.
