I want to play at the highest level - Aina

Ola Aina Ola Aina

Super Eagles fullback, Ola Aina says he still dreams of playing for some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

The 25-year-old began his career at Chelsea at a very young age. The Blues loaned him out to Championship side Hull City in 2017.

Aina later joined Torino on a season-long loan in the summer of 2018 after signing a new three-year deal with The Blues.

A year on, the Serie A outfit triggered the option of a permanent transfer for a reported fee of £9 million.

After enjoying a good number of matches in Turin, Aina returned to the Premier League joining Fulham on another loan spell with an option to buy.

“I wouldn’t look anywhere if I’m not trying to play regularly,” he said.

“For me in the future, I just want to play at the highest level, at the biggest club possible. It’s a dream and aspiration of mine and hopefully, something happens.” He told Planet Sport Football Africa.

Aina still has a year left on his contract at Torino.
