Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has guided the San Siro side back into the European competition and his reward looks to be the tough-tackling Blues target.

Antonio Conte was keen on the 30-year-old but he was snubbed by the tattooed midfield general and instead landed fans’ favourite N’Golo Kante.

Inter want to get the deal wrapped up as soon as possible to help sell shirts and season tickets over the summer.

And positive talks have happened between the club and Nainggolan’s agent Alessandro Beltrami.

Last June the no-nonsense playmaker addressed the fall-out from his decision to snub Chelsea.

He said: “I’ve not spoken to Conte. I think he’s still a bit angry with me for last year, maybe.

“I keep saying the same thing: I get attached to the clubs where I am and, if you gain a certain degree of respect there, it’s because you’ve given something to the club.

“I have a good life here, I like playing where I am and it’s not like me to change clubs. I’ve shown my love.”
