Former Belgium international Radja Nainggolan could be set for a change of scenery during the upcoming transfer window.
The holding midfielder has reportedly been listed as “not necessary” by the Italian club and since Roma have set their sights on acquiring Javier Pastore, Nainggolan is the most likely alternative to leave the side. And with that in mind, both Chelsea and Inter Milan have emerged as potential destinations.
It is not going to be easy for any of these two sides to sign the 30-year-old, though. Roma have told both sides that they can acquire Nainggolan as long as they pay the £35 million transfer fee, according to a report from TalkSPORT.
It seems the club is ready to cash out on the Belgian, who has been involved in several controversial situations of late. His quality is undeniable, but Roma want more out of their players and those off-the-field controversies could put an end to Nainggolan’s tenure on Italy’s capitol city.
For what is worth, Nainggolan is not participating with Belgium in the 2018 FIFA World Cup so that could make a transfer far easier. Although Roma are not ready to give him away, and have told team that they plan to stay firm on the £35 million transfer fee mentioned above.
