Chelsea product Aina suffers muscle-related injury ahead of Torino's trip to Sassuolo

Italian Serie A club Torino are sweating on the fitness of Chelsea-reared wingback Ola Aina ahead of their first game after the international break.  


After the training session in Philadelphia  on Thursday afternoon in preparation for their league meeting with Sassuolo, Torino issued a medical bulletin confirming that the Nigeria international underwent instrumental tests which highlighted a lesion to the left soleus.


The 26-year-old is unlikely to be involved on Monday, April 3 when the Maroons travel to the MAPEI Stadium - Città del Tricolore (Reggio nell'Emilia) to face the Black and Greens. 


In October, he suffered a muscle injury that kept him on the sidelines for approximately three months and which caused him to miss the glamour friendly between Portugal and Nigeria. 


Torino have not stated how long the Super Eagles defender will be out of action for. 


Since the start of the season, Aina has not been called up for nine games in total - eight as a result of a biceps femoris muscle injury and one as a result of suspension due to accumulated bookings. 


He was not invited for Nigeria's March internationals against Guinea-Bissau because he was ineligible for the home fixture. 


The future of Aina should be one of the transfer stories of the summer transfer window, with his contract at Torino expiring at he end of the season.
