Roma forward Radja Nainggolan claims that new Chelsea signing Jorginho is one of the most difficult opponent he has faced in Italian football. The 26-year-old has been signed by Chelsea for a fee of around £ 53 million, although a small portion of this fee is believed to have gone as a compensation for Maurizio Sarri.
