West Ham are reportedly among the clubs ‘interested’ in Torino defender Ola Aina.
The 25-year-old is a product of the Chelsea academy and has since enjoyed spells at Fulham and Hull City before arriving in Italy.
Now the versatile ex-England youth international is being linked with another move as the Hammers, Crystal Palace and Lille show an interest.

Valued at £4.95million and heading towards the final 12 months of a contract (Transfemarkt), signing the London-born ace in the summer would be an affordable option.
Albeit perhaps not a player of the elite level the Irons’ should be pursuing, the Nigerian’s ability to supplement numerous positions is of benefit to almost any squad in world football.
