Chelsea have received a major boost in their pursuit of AS Roma midfield dynamo Radja Nainggolan, someone they have been chasing for some time now.

The Belgian midfielder reportedly had an altercation with AS Roma coach Luciano Spalletti after the manager took him off in the 84th minute against Atalanta. Atalanta went on to win the match 2-1 with a last minute penalty and that means that the Rome-based club are now seven points behind leaders Juventus.

Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte has been a long-term admirer of the player. The Blues had three bids rejected in the summer and then signed N’Golo Kanté from Leicester City instead. Conte is reportedly ready to revive his interest in the midfielder who has established himself as one of the best central midfielders in the Serie A.

Chelsea could also offer him a higher salary than what he is currently earning. The flamboyant midfielder had signed a new deal that runs till 2020.
