The 28-year-old Nainggolan is a central midfielder for Roma with an attacking flair. The midfielder scored 6 goals and assisted 1 for the capital city club and has a knack for playing long balls over the top and being able to hold up play when needed.
Nainggolan told the Telegraph that it would be hard to leave Italy and he would have to know the move would further his career. The move suits Nainggolan and coming in under Conte could mean immediate starting time.
Chelsea need to solidify their midfield and with under-preforming players like Fabregas, Oscar, and Hazard, Nainggolan could immediately challenge for a starting spot.
