Everton and West Ham are fighting to bring Super Eagles defender Ola Aina back to Premier League from Italian outfit Torino this summer.

Th-23-year-old Nigeria international joined Serie A side on a permanent deal last summer after he impressed during his loan stint with Torino from Stamford Bridge.

Aina has continued to impress in Italy and made 25 appearances for Torino this season before the campaign was suspended due to Coronavirus outbreak.

However, his future at the club is uncertain as the Super Eagles star is claimed to be feeling homesick and wants to return to England in the summer.


According to Gazzetta dello Sport report that Everton and West Ham have emerged as options for him in the summer transfer window.

Carlo Ancelloti and David Moyes have been impressive with Aina so far during his two years spell with Torino and both Premier League side are actively looking to bring Super Eagles defender back to the most exciting league in the world.

The Nigeria international family still lives in London and despite his impressive spell in Italy, the former Chelsea man is claimed to have been feeling homesick.

Everton and West Ham could provide Aina with an escape route, but it remains to be seen how much Torino might demand for his services.
