The management of Italian Serie A top club, Torino FC, has opened a window of discussion to sign Super Eagles of Nigeria defender, Ola Aina, on a permanent deal following his super form recently in both club and international football.
Torino FC is now waiting for the January 2019 window to perfect the deal which they believe strongly would help the team do well in the Italian Serie A.
The former England junior international star, has been involved in all matches played by Torino so far this season, logging 734 minutes, as the Super Eagles full back hits the best form of his career so far.
Ola Aina, who is on loan from Chelsea FC of England, was voted Man of the Match in last weekend’s league game, in a relatively difficult fixture, this further convinced the management of Torino FC that only a permanent deal would be most appropriate for the Nigerian star.
Aina, joined Torino on a season-long loan from Chelsea in August, and The Maroons have been quite impressed with the versatile fullback. The Turin-based side are now prepared to activate Aina’s purchase clause before the season runs its full course.
This is despite the fact that Chelsea inserted a ten million euros clause into their agreement with Torino before Aina moved out of Stamford Bridge on loan.
Before then, Aina, who played on loan at Hull City last season, had extended his contract with The Blues until the end of the 2020-2021 campaign, which makes it dicey for Torino to get him on the cheap.
