Aina Begins Battle To Save Torino Career As Serie A Season Restarts

Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina is set to begin the fight to salvage his club football career with Torino in Italy when the Serie A returns for business on Saturday, June 20.

Torino host Parma at the Stadio Olimpico in the first game of the Italian top-flight which resumes after more than a three-month break which was caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Ever since leaving Chelsea in the summer of 2018, Aina has grown from leaps to bounds as the versatile defender has been a regular in Torino’s starting eleven with his wonderful performances.

Aina who has been linked with a return to the Premier League has, however, made only 15 starts from 20 appearances in the Italian top-flight this season, making an assist while picking up six yellow cards.

Torino paid €9.8 million to sign the 23-year-old permanently from Chelsea last summer but he is now rated at €8 million, making him the most valuable Nigerian defender, according to Transfermarkt.

At €8 million, Aina wouldn’t be too expensive for any club to purchase as he is still relatively young. The future of the Nigerian at Torino is also hanging in the balance, according to reports.
