Fulham discuss loan deal for former Chelsea defender Aina

Ola Aina could return to west London to join Fulham.

The Whites are in talks with Torino to sign the full-back on a season-long loan.

Aina, 23, signed for the Italian club from Chelsea on a permanent deal last year after impressing during a season on loan.

A product of Chelsea’s academy, London-born Nigeria international Aina made six first-team appearances for the Blues – four of them as a substitute. He also had a season on loan at Hull City.

Fulham are interested in another former Chelsea player, Bertrand Traore, but have had an approach for the forward rejected by Lyon, who want in excess of £20m for him.
