Torino want to cash in on Leeds United target Ola Aina for £7m in January transfer window

Torino are reportedly looking to part ways with Leeds United target Ola Aina in the January transfer window amid his erratic form.

According to Tuttosport [6 January], the Serie A club do not want to end up losing him on a free and will be willing to accept a fee in the region of £7million for his services.

However, given the fact that they do not want to let him leave once his deal expires, they could even lower his price further with Leeds in the hunt.

Drameh replacement?

The Whites do not need a right-back right now, but the 26-year-old could emerge as a candidate should Cody Drameh be shown the door.

Jesee Marsch had said that he plans on giving the youngster a chance, but if he wants to leave then it makes sense to allow him to leave.

His career is stalling due to the lack of game time so he could even end up pushing a move this month.

Then it does make a lot of sense for Leeds to sign Aina as he could serve as a good option at right-back as well as left-back.

Aina has Premier League experience too so he won’t take too much time to adapt to life in the Premier League either.

If he’s available for that price then it makes sense for the Whites to make a move for him in January or even in the summer.
