Belgium international Radja Nainggolan has confirmed that negotiations are ongoing between Chelsea and Roma over his signature but no deal has been struck.
Nainggolan who has played in Italy for just over a decade is loved by new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte who tried to previously sign him while at Juventus.
The 28-year-old midfielder is open to a move to the premier league but he is not getting carried away as both clubs have yet to agree on a transfer fee.
“There has been contact between Roma and Chelsea,” the midfielder told HLN Nina.
“But I will not get involved so long as there is no agreement between the clubs.
“Chelsea are keen to strengthen their squad and Conte is a manager who wanted to sign me before. Chelsea are a big club.
“But the transfer is not a done deal so long as there is no signed contract on the table. And it would not be easy to leave Italy after 11 years.”
Nainggolan’s current contract with Roma runs out in June 2020.
