Ola Aina

Chelsea could finally part ways with Nigerian international and young full-back Ola Aina as Serie A outfit Torino are pushing to have him on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Ola Aina is currently having a long-season loan with the Italian outfit but they seem to be enjoying his service and seek to land him in the coming summer window.

It is understood that the Serie A outfit have an option in the loan deal to sign the Nigerian international on a permanent deal for a fee of £9 million which they are ready to pay.

Ola Aina was made to leave the West London outfit as it is obvious that he could not beat the competition in the team to secure regular playing time but he is being tipped by the club to become a world class player which is why he as handed the opportunity to secure more playing time away.

He has therefore been impressive for Torino, scoring his first goal for the club on Sunday in their 1-0 win against Udinese.

It is therefore not sure if the West London outfit will sanction a move for Ola Aina on a permanent deal as they could have need for him in the future.
