English Premier League clubs Everton and West Ham United are ready for a battle to sign Super Eagles defender Ola Aina from Torino next summer.

Aina has been impressive for Torino in Serie A despite the team’s struggle this season, making 23 appearances.

The 23-year old joined the Italian side last summer from Chelsea in a deal worth €10 million euros, following a successful loan spell at the club.

Italian outlet, Calciomercato claims Torino will listen to offers for the full-back but will ask for a transfer fee in excess of €10 million they paid to Chelsea.

It is also reported in some section of the media in Italy that Ola Aina is homesick and wants to return to London with his family.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelloti is looking for a reliable fullback as he looks to rebuild the Toffees and is keen on the former Chelsea man.

David Moyes is also interested to bring in Aina to bolster his West Ham United squad ahead of next season.
