The Maroons, according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, are considering activating the defender’s €10m buyout clause in January.

Aina, 22, has impressed since joining Walter Mazzarri’s side in August. So, it would be no surprise if the Italian club keep him beyond his current loan deal.

The Nigeria international, who has started Torino’s last two games, spent last season at English Championship club Hull City.

He featured for Nigeria during the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, but missed out on the finals after being dropped from the 23-man list•
