Bournemouth Manager Scott Parker is quoted with interest for Super Eagles and Torino right back Ola Aina. Parker worked with the Torino right back during his time at Fulham.
Ola Aina will be tempted to move back to England after enduring a difficult time with Torino since his return from the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon. A move will suit both club and player this summer.
The Super Eagles defender last week opened up on his trials at the Serie A outfit following his return from the African Cup of Nations .
Aina said “My season was up and down. The first half from August before I left for the AFCON was okay, a few good performances and some things in those games I think were quite nice as well,”
“And then after the Afcon things really slowed up for me.
“I wasn’t being selected in the starting XI and playing games wasn’t free-flowing as prior, but I have no regrets whatsoever.”
Aina’s suitors Bournemouth returned to the English Premier League after finishing second in the last English Championship season behind Ola Aina’s former team Fulham.
Bournemouth is working on a move for Ola Aina and other transfer targets to bolster their squad ahead of the return to the English top flight . Bournemouth will host Aston Villa on the opening day of the 2022/2023 EPL season.
Torino will accept any offer that meets their 10 million Euros valuation with Bournemouth willing to push through a transfer as soon as possible to beat off competition from other prospective suitors.
Ola Aina is currently on holiday after starring for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the AFCON Qualification victories over Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe earlier this month.
