Reports that the Belgian could be used as a makeweight to fund transfer activity this summer have been rejected by the man himself, who wants to stay.
Inter star Radja Nainggolan has dismissed reports he could be ready to leave San Siro after just a single season, while speaking of his excitement to work under new coach Antonio Conte.
The Belgium international was one of a number of eye-catching signings made by the Nerazzurri ahead of the 2018-19 season, joining from Serie A rivals Roma.
Inter had hoped to challenge on domestic and international levels after that heavy recruitment but ultimately fell short, suffering early elimination from the Champions League while only securing fourth place in the league on the final day of the season ahead of rivals AC Milan.
But the midfielder at least is determined to stay put and drive his team on to better things.
“I am not talking about the transfer market, I have always been on a team for many years and it would be strange if I left Inter after just one season,” he explained to Sky Sport.
“I have a three-year contract so I am calm.
“Inter are a club that wanted me and they are trying to grow. I would like to grow with them, let’s see how it goes. I have always been happy where I have been.”
