Chelsea target reveals Eden Hazard is urging him to seal transfer

Radja Nainggolan reveals that Eden Hazard has been urging him to join Chelsea this summer

Radja Nainggolan has revealed that Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have both been urging him to consider a transfer to Chelsea this summer.

The AS Roma star has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks and it has been reported that Chelsea have had a £27m bid for the player turned down.

Chelsea are yet to officially confirm any new signings this summer as they prepare for life under new manager Antonio Conte.

However, Nainggolan has revealed that Chelsea are keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Nainggolan is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “I have met with Antonio Conte and I know he wanted me at Juventus.

“He has told me what kind of player I can be for him and I feel he still wants me.

“However, I am now concentrating on the next few weeks and to see what will happen.

“Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard have already asked me to come to Chelsea, but a possible transfer is not in my head.”

Former Juventus manager Conte is set to officially take over at Chelsea after his involvement with Italy at Euro 2016.
