According to reports, Antonio Conte has given up on trying to sign Radja Nainggolan after Roma refused to budge and has now turned his attention to his Belgium team mate Alex Witsel in a £28m move.

It's clear that Chelsea need to bolster their midfield options this season and with a bid for N'Golo Kante on the table, Nemanja Matic being told he is staying and Cesc Fabregas as the third option in those positions, Alex Witsel has become the fourth player Conte would like at the club in what appears to be a key part of the framework to his team.

It looked as thought Everton had stolen a march on other European sides that showed an interest and there are reports that terms had been agreed so it looked as though he would head to Goodison Park under Ronald Koeman. However, Chelsea have once again forced there way into negotiations and have trumped everyone with the player preferring a move to Stamford Bridge to link up with three of his Belgian team mates (Batshuayi, Courtois and Hazard).

I have to say that Witsel has been a player that I have admired and plenty of people have spoken about in the past. You look at the Belgium side that took part in the Euros and you immediately think of the likes of Hazard, De Bruyne and Lukaku with someone like Witsel under the radar if anything because he goes about doing the dirty work for the others to take the glory.

He has proven his ability, looks as though he is very calm and composed on the ball and isn't scared to put his foot into a tackle. In my opinion, he would be someone well suited to life in the Premier League.

The problem is, if we do managed to sign N'Golo Kante alongside Fabregas and Matic, where would Witsel start?

Competition for places is what we need and what we simply must have to ensure that player performance levels do not drop anywhere near what happened last season. However, that's all well and good but at the same time you need to keep your players happy.

Two-out-of-four doesn't go - Who should start in your opinion and what do you think of Witsel?
