Chelsea have been touted as a possible destination for Belgian midfielder Nainggolan and have been linked with a bid for the player in the January transfer window by The Times (via Metro) in recent days.

However, Italian journalist Giulianelli has suggested that Chelsea will be rebuffed in their attempts to land the Belgium international, which will prompt them to turn their attentions to signing Chile international Vidal from Bayern Munich.

Giulianelli tweeted:

Chelsea are looking to continue their fine form in the Premier League and make it 13 wins in a row in the top flight when they host Stoke City on New Year’s Eve.
