Chelsea plot raid for Roma pair


Chelsea are planning a big money double swoop for Roma pair Radja Nainggolan and Kostas Manolas, writes the Express.


The Blues have been strongly linked with a move for Nainggolan after reports began to gain momentum that Antonio Conte would take charge at Stamford Bridge following Euro 2016.


The Italy head coach is supposedly a huge admirer of the all-action midfielder and is keen to bring him to Chelsea in a bid to shake up the squad.

He could be joined by current Roma teammate Manolas, with the same paper writing that the Blues are prepared to part with £52m to bring the pair to west London.


Chelsea will look to the Greek centre-back as a means of shoring up the defence, though Everton are supposedly keen on the 24-year-old.


Big movements are expected at Stamford Bridge this summer as rumoured new head coach Conte aims to mould the squad in his image.
