The Belgium winger might be concentrating on his country’s Euro 2016 opener against Italy tomorrow night, but he also quickly gave his opinion on the Roma midfielder while speaking at a press conference this afternoon.
Nainggolan is an international team-mate and has been linked with Chelsea all summer after another strong season in Italy.
Antonio Conte is believed to be keen on taking the Belgian midfielder with him to Stamford Bridge.
And Hazard has backed the move – revealing he and Courtois want Nainggolan at Chelsea.
Speaking at his press conference, Hazard, per standard.co.uk, said: “Thibaut and I want Radja Nainggolan to join Chelsea, but we are not in charge of the situation.”
Not that Conte would need any backing from Hazard or any other Chelsea player to go for Nainggolan.
The midfielder has played all of his career in Italy, but could see Chelsea as the ideal team to leave Serie A for.
A strong Euro 2016 campaign would certainly help Nainggolan and Conte make their decision on the move being right for both parties.
