Radja Nainggolan has officially signed for Inter Milan on a four-year contract from Serie A rivals Roma on 26, June 2018.

The fee is believed to be £21million, with two players, full-back Davide Santon and 18-year-old midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo heading to Roma in exchange.

The 30-year-old was instrumental in their run to the Champions League semi-finals last season where the giallorossi were eliminated by English side, Liverpool.

"The conditions have been met for a deal for Radja Nainggolan," Inter's sporting director Piero Ausilio told the club's website. He is a top player."
