Torino is locked in talks with Chelsea about a permanent deal for Ola Aina.
On-loan this season in Turin, the Blues fullback had already done enough to convince Toro to seek a permanent transfer.
Toro’s Sports Chief, Gianluca Petrachi, is currently speaking with Chelsea about closing a deal this month.
A fee of €10 million had been mentioned for Aina – a price Torino had been encouraged to meet with expectations it could easily double in six months’ time.
For his part, the defender is open to extending his stay in Italy beyond the end of this season.
