The Belgium international is also reported to be a top target for AC Milan, but his current club have made him the face of their 2017-18 promotions

Radja Nainggolan has fronted up Roma’s new kit launch, suggesting that the Serie A club expect to fend off interest from Chelsea and Milan.

The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a big-money transfer this summer after three and a half seasons in Rome.

Nainggolan reveals Chelsea talks

Chelsea have held a long-standing interest in the 29-year-old midfielder, while ambitious Milan are prepared to splash the cash in an effort to restore domestic dominance.

Roma, though, have no intention of parting with their prized assets and have made Nainggolan very much a central character in their promotion campaigns for the 2017-18 season.

Mohamed Salah is another of those to have generated transfer speculation, with Liverpool among those said to be keen on the former Chelsea forward.

Netherlands midfielder Kevin Strootman has also been linked with a move to Inter, but both men figure alongside Nainggolan on the kit launch imagery.

'Nainggolan will leave Roma'

Roma are understandably reluctant to see key figures head for the exits after pushing Juventus close in this season’s Serie A title race.

They will be looking to take the crown next season, while also staying competitive in the Champions League.
