Premier League new comers, Fulham are close to completing a deal to sign Torino’s Nigeria international defender Ola Aina.
Ola Aina who left Chelsea for Torino after failing to secure a starting spot is set to join the Cottagers on an initial season-long loan, with the deal expected to be completed by the middle of the week.
Fulham will have the option to make Aina’s loan a permanent transfer for a figure in the region of £11m.
The Nigerian international is a graduate of Chelsea’s academy and spent over a decade at the club.
He spent the 2017-18 campaign away on loan at Hull before making a season-long loan move to Torino the following year.
The Serie A side took up the option to make Aina’s move from Chelsea permanent in June 2019 and made 37 appearances for Torino last season.
Aina made five first-team appearances during his time at Chelsea
