Chelsea sold Ola Aina to Torino last summer, after the academy product impressed on loan with the Italian Serie A side the previous year.

Aina who was sold to Torino for £8m could now be back to West London, but this time, he’d be playing for Fulham.

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea academy product Ola Aina could be returning to west London to join Fulham on loan, just a year after the former Blues defender left Chelsea for Torino on a permanent move.

The 23-year-old appeared in 37 matches and netted 3 goals for Torino last season which was an upgrade of the one goal he scored in 32 games the previous year.

According to the report, Fulham will have the option to make Aina’s loan a permanent transfer for a figure in the region of £11m.

Aina spent the 2017-18 campaign away on loan at Hull before making a season-long loan move to Torino the following year and then signed permanently afterwards.

Aina broke through the youth ranks at Chelsea, making his first-team debut in 2016. He made his first-team debut for the Blues in a League Cup win over Bristol Rovers in 2016.
