Chelsea will open talks for Roma’s Antonio Rudiger today but Radja Nainggolan doesn’t want to leave, say reports.
La Repubblica reports that Italy CT Antonio Conte, who will take over at Stamford Bridge after Euro 2016, was impressed by Rudiger during Italy’s recent 4-1 friendly defeat to Germany in Munich.
The newspaper says that a meeting has been scheduled for today to begin negotiations for a deal to bring the 23-year-old to London.
He is currently on loan at the Giallorossi from Stuttgart, but Roma have the option to sign him for €9m at the end of the season.
The paper believes the capital club will activate that option before discussing a €20m sale to Chelsea.
The Blues have also been strongly linked with Lupi midfielder Nainggolan, but the report warns the Belgium international doesn’t want to leave.
