Video: Chelsea loanee Ola Aina scores lovely header in Italy

Chelsea youngster Ola Aina has gone under the radar this season, the Nigerian could be about to receive the plaudits he deserves after he scored this afternoon.

In the 31st minute of Torino’s tie with Udinese, the versatile 22-year-old scored his first goal whilst in Italy. The Nigerian international rose highest to score a lovely header.

Aina has played as a wing-back this season and as a wide midfielder, the youngster is naturally right-footed but Aina is extremely comfortable with his left foot – this has allowed him to play on either flank for Torino this season.

It was quite fitting that Aina marked his 20th Serie A appearance with a goal, it looks like the ace – who spent last season on-loan at Hull – could have a big future, if given an opportunity at Chelsea.

Check out the goal below:

At the very least Aina deserves a chance to play backup to Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso next season, I see the Nigerian as a better option than Reece James – who has impressed out on loan with Wigan this season.

Aina has demonstrated how reliable he is in different positions and the youngster has also done so in Italy’s top-flight.
