Ola Aina set to join Torino on permanent deal
Chelsea have agreed a deal to sell Nigeria defender, Ola Aina to Italian club Torino this summer on permanent deal.
The 22-year-old, who is a product of the Blues’ youth system, spent last season on loan with the Serie A club and looks to set to return there permanently.
Torino president Urbano Cairo confirmed that the club have exercised their option to buy Aina with the defender’s current deal set to expire at the end of June.
Aina plays predominately as a right-back, but is capable of playing as a wing-back or wide midfielder.
He previously spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Championship outfit Hull City, where he made 44 league appearances.
At Torino, Aina was equally as important and he played 30 of the Turin-based outfit’s 38 Serie A matches last year.
The defender has made six appearances for the Chelsea first team, three of which came in the cup competitions and three in the Premier League.
