On January 7th, we carried a report from Tuttosport, who explained that Leeds United are showing interest in Torino’s Ola Aina.
It was also stated the Serie A side will let the wing-back leave, if they are to receive the ‘right proposal’ for him in the winter market.
It’s claimed Marcelo Bielsa’s side are ‘pressing’ to sign the ex-Chelsea man this month. As things stand, there is ‘no agreement’ between the two clubs for the 25-year-old’s transfer, but the they will ‘continue to negotiate’.
Lazio’s Mohamed Fares, who is currently on loan at Genoa, is expected to join Torino. After his arrival, the report adds, the Turin club are ‘willing to deprive’ themselves of the Nigeria international in January.
Pressing #Leeds per Ola #Aina: per il momento non c’è intesa con il #Torino, ma i due club continueranno a trattare. Dopo l’arrivo di Fares, Toro disposto a privarsi del nigeriano, ma solo in caso di un’offerta soddisfacente (intorno ai 10m€). #calciomercato @CorriereGranata

However, Corriere Granata make it clear Torino are willing to allow Aina leave if there is a ‘satisfactory offer’ of around €10m.
Whether Leeds are ready to meet the Italian club’s demands is not made clear in the report.
