Roma midfielder, Radja Nainggolan has revealed that he had talks with Chelsea about a possible transfer last summer, but opted to stay in Italy.
The Belgium international has long been a target for Chelsea , who even though they have a number of midfielders on the books, are still keen on signing the enforcer.
Antonio Conte was quite interested in bringing Nainggolan to the EPL and even though he rejected the opportunity, he says joining is still a possibility.
“Yes, I talked to him,” Nainggolan said from Belgium’s 2018 World Cup qualifying training base.
“They were really interested and wanted me. That’s all I can say.
“Bring me the sun and I’ll come.”
He added: “I watch the Premier League a lot. A lot of my international teammates play there.
“I think it’s the best league in the world. When the transfer market opens, we’ll talk about it again.”
