Roma won’t accept offer less than £40 million valuation for the defensive midfielder. Nainggolan was signed by Roma on a permanent basis after his loan spell from Cagliari in 2010 with a meagre fee of €1.3 million.

The midfielder exploded into the limelight and attracted a lot of interest from European top clubs after few seasons with Roma and Chelsea has signalled their interest in bringing the Belgian to Stamford Bridge.

Conte is a big fan of Nainggolan and his combination with N’Golo Kante will wreck opposition midfielders something the Italian tactician will welcome.
