Nigeria defender, Ola Aina is set to join Italian Seria A side Torino on loan after agreeing terms with English Premier League side Chelsea.

According to reports from Italy, Torino have an option to buy Aina who has played just three games for the former league champions for €8m.

Towards this end, Aina who missed out ongoing to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia is expected to undergo his medical on Monday ahead of the 2018/2019 season.

The move will be his second loan spell having spent the 2017-18 season at Hull City where he played 44 games in all competitions for the championship side.

If he passes his medical, Aina who can play as a right back will become the second Nigerian to play for the Seria A side after Joel Obi who incidentally signed for Chievo Verona on Saturday on a four-year deal.
