    With news emanating from several quarters that Newcastle and Everton are interested in signing Ola Aina from Torino and Torino also willing to listen to offers this coming Transfer window, one could forsee that Ola Aina are probably in his LAST DAYS at the Italian club.

    The Interesting part of this Last days for Aina is Torino now making him more of a UTILITY PLAYER. Since he joined the club, he has played at the Left back, Right Back, RWB/LWB role but going by his last two matches like the Torino Coach is bringing something quite interesting out of him. I was shocked to see our very own OLA AINA paired upfront with ANDREA BELOTTI in the previous match before this one in a 3-5-2 formation. Aina – a striker…sounds funny lol. Well like that was not shocking enough, he Started today’s match not as a Striker this time around, he Started as a CENTRAL MIDFIELDER!! Wow!

    Aina might be on his way out of Torino but this Last days are seeming really beneficial to him to be a Utility player. Coming down to the National team, we know having a Utility player in the squad saves at Crucial moments and we seem not to be lacking yet another Utility player as Ola is emerging as one now.

    Who knows if he will be tested in the Central Defence and Goal Keeper soon…lol. Enjoy your stay at Torino Aina. All the best
