Leeds United linked with fresh move for Ola Aina

Leeds need to strengthen their defense.

The latest reports in Italy suggest that Leeds United are linked with fresh move for Ola Aina.

The Nigeria international joined Torino from Chelsea for a fee in the region of 9.8 million euros in July 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.

The right-back has featured in 18 matches for Torino this term in all competitions.

He is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Nigeria. Aina has earned 21 senior caps for the Nigeria national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Leeds United.

The report claims that Leeds manager has extensively scouted Aina and is considering a move for the right-back.

Leeds United are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

The former Chelsea man is often quick to scan the danger and is not shy of getting stuck in with some well-timed tackles to help secure possession back for his side.

According to the report, “Leeds United are interested in Torino defender Ola Aina. The Nigeria international came through the ranks at Chelsea before moving to Italy in 2019. After a spell with Fulham last season, Aina has racked up 18 appearances this season. The Whites are in the midst of an injury crisis and 25-year-old Aina is a target, per TuttoMercatoWeb. Aina is a versatile defender who can play at either fullback position or centre-back.”

A big money bid from Leeds could tempt Torino into selling their prized asset.

Torino are preparing to sell their right-back should they receive right offer for him.

Good signing for Leeds United?

If Aina is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Leeds.

Ola Aina will be an ideal choice for Marcelo Bielsa as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.

If Bielsa sees him as the right man for his side, Leeds should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
