Tiemoue Bakayoko’s move to AC Milan has just been confirmed, and he’s likely to be followed by young Ola Aina, who’s closing in on his previously rumored loan move to Torino FC.
Di Marzio’s report claims that Aina’s move will also have a €10 million buy-option, which could make the 21-year-old’s stay in Italy more than just temporary.
Taking on the challenge of the Serie A is a logical, progressive step for Aina, who enjoyed a rather successful loan spell at Hull City last season, starting 42 games and amassing 3848 minutes of playing time in the process.
Torino finished 9th in Serie A next season and Aina will face competition from the likes of Lorenzo De Silvestri, who took over from David Zappacosta last summer after he moved to Chelsea.
Here’s hoping Ola is able to grab this opportunity by its proverbial horns and make a similar mark at Torino, as he made at Hull City.
