Chelsea are believed to be looking to raid Serie A side AS Roma to land reinforcements in the form of Radja Nainggolan and Kostas Manolas in the forthcoming transfer window, reports The Daily Mirror.

It is further reported that the side may splash out as much as £45m in a double deal for the players.


The Blues are believed to be searching for midfield reinforcements to rebuild their side, with them known to have doubled their attempts following shocking comments from John Obi Mikel, as per which he revealed that he may not hesitate to part his ways with the club in the near future. Additionally, with defender John Terry currently in the twilight of his playing career, the west London giants are also in need of a long term reliable player for his position.

In light of the aforementioned situation, Nainggolan and Manolas have emerged as promising potential targets for the reigning Premier League champions, with Antonio Conte (who is touted to take the baton from Guus Hiddink in the forthcoming weeks) known to be an ardent admirer of the pair.

Chelsea, however, will need to battle with domestic competitors Liverpool and Everton in the race for the duo. While Jurgen Klopp’s side are known to be keeping tabs on the Belgian, their city rivals are believed to be keen on signing his current Greek clubmate.

Additionally, with both these players also known to be highly valuable to the Romans, it remains to be seen if any of the above Premier League sides are able to use their financial power and have their way in the coming months.
