According to Sky Sports News, Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen his midfield department ahead of next season with Micheal Carrick in the twilight of his footballing career and Paul Pogba preference to play further up the pitch.

Nainggolan who joined Roma in 2014 for just £7.7m has gone on to establish himself as one of the most highly-regarded players in Europe and this season he has made 51 appearances in all competitions scoring 11 goals in the Serie A.

Nainggolan still have three years left on his current contract but wants to try out in the premier league but Roma are not willing to lose their priced asset except for a huge fee.
