Chelsea have agreed a deal to bring Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan to Stamford Bridge this summer, Goal understands.
The Blues will pay £28 million for the Belgium international, with the player set to sign a five-year deal with the Premier League champions.
He will become Antonio Conte’s first signing after the Italy boss agreed a deal to replace Guus Hiddink after Euro 2016.
Chelsea’s deal for the box-to-box midfielder has been thrashed out over the last 48 hours with Roma and the player’s representatives.
Roma’s director of sport Walter Sabatini was spotted outside Stamford Bridge on the 7th April and set up a meeting with Chelsea’s transfer bosses and it was understood that the Belgian midfielder was Conte’s number one target to strengthen his midfield.
