Torino have decided to make use of the purchase option inserted into Ola Aina's contract when he joined the Turin based club on a season-long loan from Chelsea, according to president Urbano Cairo.
FIFA have banned Chelsea from signing players for two transfer windows after they were found guilty of breaching the rules in connection with minors and it is being speculated that The Blues do not want to sell the Nigeria international again as a result of the ban.
''Ola Aina? He did well, on Monday I will send the letter to Chelsea to communicate that we will exercise the right to purchase, '' Cairo told Sky Sport Italia.
Aina did enough to earn a permanent move to Torino, playing 30 games (22 as a starter) in the Serie A and scoring one goal while providing three assists.
The 22-year-old signed for Chelsea as a U11 player and has played six games for their first team.
