Chelsea face stern competition in the race to sign AS Roma midfield Radja Nainggolan.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are interested in signing the Belgian this summer, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his midfield.

Antonio Conte is somewhat of an expert when it comes to Serie A, and if he has been tuning in this campaign, he will have seen that Nainggolan has developed into one of the most accomplished midfielders in Europe.

Chelsea are not the only side to have had their heads turned by his performances. The Sun cite Sky Sports in reporting that Manchester United are also keen to secure his services. Sky Sports believe that Man United are seriously interested in adding Nainggolan to their squad, which will undoubtedly come as a concern for Conte in his respective pursuit of the 29-year-old.

It remains to be seen whether Nainggolan would rather play for the Premier League champions, or the sixth best team in England.
