The youngster, who has spent this season on loan from Chelsea, has seemingly impressed during his stay in Italy.

The 22-year-old made a total of 32 appearances for the club this year in all competitions, scoring once and assisting twice in the process.
And it seems as if the Nigerian international’s performances for Torino have been enough to convince the Serie A outfit to fork out for the winger.
According to Calcio Mercato, when speaking to Sky Sports, Urbano confirmed that Torino will be signing Aina this summer, stating that “Ola Aina? He did well, tomorrow he will send the letter to Chelsea to communicate that we will exercise the right of redemption”.
The report also went on to state that Aina’s loan deal included a €10M option-to-buy, the price tag that Torino are said to be paying for the Nigerian’s services.
Torino’s president has confirmed the club will be signing Aina permanently this summer
The Super Eagles defender has only managed to make six first-team appearances for Chelsea during his time with the Blues, and given the fact that he’s now 22, it would make sense for Aina to move on, as it seems unlikely that he’ll be claiming a first-team place with the club in the future.
