European Giant Confirm They Are Working On A Deal To Sign Radja Nainggolan
While AC Milan continue their incredible summer transfer splurge following the signing of Juventus defender Leonard Bonucci, cross-town rivals Inter Milan are hoping to match their effort by securing a brilliant signing.
Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has confirmed the club are working on a deal to sign AS Roma's sought after midfielder Radja Nainggolan.

The Belgium international has been courting plenty of interest with both Chelsea and Manchester United, among others, heavily linked with his services.
AS Roma's sporting director Ramon Monchi has reaffirmed the clubs stance on the player, though Spalletti is hoping the two clubs can strike a deal.
"That is something the directors are working on," the new Inter boss said regarding the signing of Nainggolan via Goal.

Milan are undergoing a complete makeover, but Spalletti is adamant that his side don't need a massive overhaul ahead of the new season.
"We've got a good team with many players who haven't expressed themselves to their full potential and those who arrive will help complete the side. We don't need to have an extraordinary transfer market to aspire to the top four."

"I feel reassured in every way. Clearly we had some discussions and when you make a promise, you have to maintain it, so I am confident it'll happen."
"Because those two, three, four players we need to put into the squad don't necessarily have to be top champions, but simply completing the team in those areas that are lacking," he added.
