Italian Serie A club Torino are closing in on a permanent move for Chelsea loanee Ola Aina according to the report emanating from British media.
Popular media channel Goal claim that Torino are ready to make the player’s loan transfer a permanent one in a deal that could be as much as £8.7m.
The 22-year-old has been in superb form for Torino this season and Walter Mazzarri’s side would like to take up the option of making the deal permanent.
He has made 23 appearances for Torino in all competitions.
Chelsea want to sell some of their fringe players in the summer transfer window and Super Eagles fullback Ola Aina is in that category.
Ola Aina is a utility player that can play either as a left-back or as a right-back.
Another Chelsea loanee that could leave the club is AC Milan midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The Frenchman has been in good form for AC Milan who are keen to negotiate the £30m transfer fee in his loan contract.
The Italians want to reduce the aforementioned fee to make his loan deal permanent.
Tiemoue Bakayoko spent just one season at Stamford Bridge after he flopped at the club upon his £40m move from French giants AS Monaco.
