Chelsea were interested in Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan last summer, but Roma were hell-bent on keeping the Belgian.
Just last month, Nainggolan confirmed that Chelsea were indeed interested in signing him.
“Yes. I talked to him [Conte],” Nainggolan told Sky Sports News last month.
“They were really interested and wanted me over there. That’s all I can say.”
According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Serie A giants are willing to sell him to cover costs this summer.
Roma need to balance the books with Atalanta star Franck Kessie likely to arrive, and value the Belgium international at £35 million.
