Nainggolan penned a new four-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico in July, however, and he does not see any reason to leave Roma as they seek some major silverware.
"My objective? I want to do better than last year, that's clear. If I stayed at Roma, it's because I want to win with this team, this shirt, this club," he told Il Romanista. "It'd be an indescribable emotion [to win something with Roma], and I hope sooner or later we can celebrate something.
"Why did I choose to stay at Roma? I had many important offers, but for me it's important to have the right lifestyle with the people I love. I'm happy where I am and I had no reason to change teams. It's not just a matter of feeling good at Roma, it's also because of all the affection.
"There's nothing more beautiful. The other day, before the match against Atletico, [Yannick Ferreira] Carrasco asked me why I stayed here. It's because I have everything here, I told him. The club want to grow, I want to win and Roma are a club with great traditions. We're the capital of Italy, it can't be that we've gone so long without winning something, but I'm sure it'll happen soon."
Nainggolan has a goal and an assist in his first three Serie A outings of the season.
