Chelsea to make third bid for £31m midfielder this week – report

Chelsea are ready to make a third bid to try and sign Radja Nainggolan from AS Roma this summer, say reports

Chelsea are lining up a third bid for AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan this week, according to reports.

The Blues have been linked with a host of players since Antonio Conte’s appointment as the club’s new manager but are yet to make any new signings this summer.

The west London side are thought to be on the trail of Belgium and Roma star Nainggolan as Conte looks to revamp his midfield ahead of next season.

Now, the Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues are ready to table a fresh bid for Nainggolan as Conte bids to strengthen his squad.

However, the same report goes on to say that the Serie A side are holding out for as much as £31m as they bid to keep hold of their prize asset.
