With all the reports of meetingsreunions and lowball bids, all signs point to heavy, palpable interest form Chelsea in AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan. But most, if not all signs also point to Nainggolan not being too keen on moving from Italy, despite Chelsea's advances.

Here's the latest on that.

"I will stay, I'm not moving from here. I'm happy in Rome, I don't want to leave."

So that's pretty clear.

These quotes come from some sort of fan event, so obviously Nainggolan wasn't about to declare his burning desire to leave the club, but this statement isn't out of line with most of what he's said before publicly and on Twitter.  He even called the Italian media to task recently over their speculations.  So, if he's speaking the truth, especially combined with Roma's apparent desire to not be a selling club, convincing him to move to Chelsea will not be an easy (or cheap) task.
