Chelsea have once again loaned out their defender Ola Aina before the start of the Serie A League.
The 21-year-old defender spent last season on loan at Hull City where he showed more promises and determination in his play so as to get regular action under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
The Nigerian versatile player, who could play as a right-back and as a Left-back, is reportedly on his verge of signing a loan deal with Torino, who have reportedly reached an agreement with the Blues.
According to Sky Sports Italia, the Nigerian star is set to have his Medicals with the club today and he could be unveiled to the club’s faithful before the end of the day, should everything go on according to plan.
To further confirm that the deal is on the verge of completion, the defender was seen at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino yesterday when Torino tackled Cosenza in the Coppa Italia third round fixture.
It was reported last week before the close of the transfer period last Thursday that host of European clubs, including Villarreal, PSV Eindhoven, Derby County, West Brom and Queens Park Rangers — were all interested in his services.
He graduated from the Blues academy in the 2016-17 season and he has featured for the Blues senior squad but couldn’t lay claim for a place in Antonio Conte’s starting lineup throughout the season.
