AS Torino of Italy are set to hook a permaneent deal for Ola Aina, who is currently on loan from Chelsea, as the Serie A side are ready to cough out The Blues’ €10m asking price for the Super Eagles’ full back.
Chelsea are holding out for €10m on the dark-skinned versatile full back, but Torino are showing no qualms in their desire to get the player in an outright transfer.
To show how serious they are about hooking the in-form Aina, Torino have detailed their sports chief, Gianluca Petrachi to hold crunch talks with Chelsea about closing a deal this month.
Torino are locked in talks with Chelsea about a permanent deal for Aina, who has done enough to convince Toro to seek a permanent transfer.
A fee of €10m has been mentioned for Aina, yet Torino are encouraged by his form to pay up, amidst expectations that his value could easily double in six months.
As it were, Aina is open to extending his stay in Italy beyond the end of this season, as he aims to consolidate on the amazing surge his career has received since taking what appeared like a gamble outside England.
