Everton Targets Super Eagles Defender
With Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Joseph Yobo as the last Nigerian defender to play for Everton, the EPL side are on the hunt to sign another Eagles defender, Ola Aina from Torino of Italy, Bestchoicesports.com.ng reports.
Aina may be returning to the English Premier League with transfer rumours suggesting Everton and West Ham are reportedly interested in the services of the left-back yet again.
It is understood that due to an inexplicable drop in performance, Italia Serie A side Torino is considering selling their Nigeria international.
Torino coughed out €10m to English Premier League side for Aina’s services in the summer of 2019 after a successful loan spell with the club
Aina was regular figure under the former coach of the Turin-based club Walter Mazzarri before he was fired due to dwindling performances leading to poor results.
Now only enjoying a bit-part role, Aina may be heading back to England where English Premier League sides Everton and West Ham United have shown interest in taking the utility player.
It’s left to be seen if the two clubs will pay €10m because Torino president Vagnati insists on recouping the cash spent on him.
As for Aina, earlier reports indicate he is warming to the option of a possible return to England as it will mean being closer to his family who lives in London.
