Chelsea announce imminent departure of player

22 year-old Ola Aina has completed a move to Serie A side Torino from Chelsea, per club Website

Ola Aina spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Torino. The defender impressed at the club, and the Italian team has decided to make the deal permanent.

Aina made 30 league appearances for the Italian outfit last season, scoring his debut goal in February against Udinese.

Having made a total of three club appearances for the Stamford Bridge outfit, the youngster has decided to move on.

The Nigerian international earned his first international call while on loan at Hull City from Chelsea where he made a total of 44 appearances.

Torino have now decided to trigger the option in the loan clause and the promising defender will be turning out for them permanently in the following season.

Following Aina’s departure, Chelsea now have Cesar Azpilicueta and David Zappacosta as the only right backs in the team.

Chelsea will be unable to sign any player this summer as they have been hot with a double transfer ban. Hence, it is likely that they will have another youngster Reece James to call upon should either or both of the senior players get injured.

The Blues will be playing in the UEFA Champions League next season as they finished third in the league while also wining the UEFA Europa League.
