I think we should give this another try. Conte clearly is a big fan and he knows what he's doing. Radja on our midfield means bringing in a warrior. This would be a great extra for our attacking department. With a warrior behind you... you know you can focus on what you do best: attacking! Not only is Radja running all over the pitch to regain possession (with his famous tackles)... He also has the stamina to attack in every game! With his amazing technique he also scores stunners from outside the box in like at least 1 out of 10 games! 

Bring him in :)!

AS Roma coach Luciano Spalletti lavished praise on midfielder Radja Nainggolan, describing the Belgian as a thoroughbred after his two-goal performance in the 4-0 win over Sampdoria.

"He's on another level – a great player who can play anywhere you put him," Spalletti told reporters after Thursday's Coppa Italia round of 16 tie.

"He needs space though because that's when he really comes into his element. If you pen him in, he finds it harder. When he's able to play on instinct, he becomes a real handful.

Nainggolan has been the driving force in midfield this season, leading Roma to second in the Serie A table, one point behind leaders Juventus.

His first effort against Sampdoria was one of the best goals of the season in Italy as he met a misplaced clearance with a first-time volley which dipped wickedly into the net.

Yeah but he don't want to come nor Roma sell. 

I would love him here even if he's older for next season but I still take him.

Last night's performance is just a glimpse of what he can do and bring to our team. Hope Conte tries again in the summer.

If we signed only him, and kept our XI the same but for Radja in Matic's place, we'd probably retain the title, and at least get to the CL semi's. Add just 1-2 more players, like a Sanchez, or any top quality addition in either defence or attack, and we, Bayern & Madrid will be clear favourites for a CL win. Radja is 3 players in one. Kante is 3 players in one. It'd be pure domination.

He really should be our number one target this summer. Has everything thats ideal to play alongside Kante.

He's like Kante with the strike from distance that we haven't seen here since Super Frank left!

 

Are we even doubting this? Imaging what an astonishing midfield he & Kante would be!!! No one will be able to go straight through the middle :)!!!

Sign him up!

Im genuinely wondering why no one tried to play two such players in midfield (or maybe I dont remember it). 

Probably there is a reason managers prefer at least one creator in midfield. 

But both Kante and Radja are quite technical and maybe it could work if we deploy very direct and efficient counter attacking system.

My prefered choice would be three man midfield with Kante, someone similar and playmaker. But then we lose wingers :/

Well you need a playmaker in front of them: like Cesc or even Eden! 

You just play them in a triangle with the point aiming up front!

If Lewis Baker could add defending to his game, I would say he could be our Nainggolan in CM. Radja was unheard of at Baker's age. I feel we can mould at least one of our loanees into this kind of player. We need to imo.

Isn't that like saying If Tibo could score goals he could be our next Diego?

This lads an animal as a defender. Sod all is going past him if he can help it. Its not something that yopu just add to your profile or everyone could do it..

There is such a thing called "work ethic" which can turn the average player into a fantastic one. Of course a player can add that to their game, it's just about putting in extra effort to become proficient at it. It is a bit silly to compare Tibo to an outfield player. Baker is a central midfielder, so he can absolutely get better at all aspect of his game if coached right and soaks up the info. Do you think Nainggolan just became this good overnight? Where was he at in terms of development at 21 years old? He obviously worked hard at it. His goal scoring has increased to say, 2/3 seasons ago; that's no coincidence.

Yeah of course it was a weak analogy and Baker MIGHT have a defensive spark in him but dont you think you need that characteristic in you to begin with? Cescy has an amazing work ethic but never been a great defender. Its not a skill all players have. Radja has trained for that all his footballing life I should think.

Hes the standard of player we have to look at bringing in cause we cant do Europe with our current lads. But I got faith in Conte to get who we need. I just hope theres a couple of marquee type starters amongst them.

Imagine having Radja in a team with the likes of Courtois, Hazard, Lukaku, Carrasco, Mertens, KDB, Vertongen, Alderweireld, Tielemans.....But, Roberto Martinez thinks he's not good enough :-)

Roberto Martinez is a clueless nitwit. God knows how the fuck he got the Belgium job. Says something about the Belgium FA appointing a sacked Everton manager.
