Earlier on Friday, we carried a report from Corriere Granata, who stated that Leeds United are ‘pressing’ to sign Ola Aina in the winter market.
It was also explained the Whites have not found an agreement with Torino, but the two clubs continue to negotiate for the wing-back.
Today’s edition of Tuttosport provides a fresh update on this case. Lazio’s Mohamed Fares is set to join the Turin club and his impending arrival should overcrowd the left wing-back position.
Therefore, ‘developments are expected on a possible sale of Aina’ in the ‘next few hours’.
The Nigeria international has admirers in the Premier League, with ‘Leeds, in particular’, and could be allowed to leave in the winter market.
The former Chelsea man is a January transfer target for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and the report states the Whites could ‘accelerate talks’ with the Serie A side in the coming days.
Aina is currently with Nigiera at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and Tuttosport say even the player also has a decision to make, likely on a transfer to Elland Road.
