Chelsea could still see a number of departures this month, with European sides having until the end of August to complete their transfer activity.

The Blues have already offloaded Tiemoue Bakayoko to AC Milan and could also see Danny Drinkwater forced out of the club, while young starlets also head abroad to further their development ahead of a push for first-team football.

One of the players who has completed a move to the continent is Nigeria international Ola Aina, who sealed a switch to Serie A side Torino after impressing on loan with Hull City last season.

The 21-year-old is looking to impress in Italy and explained his decisions behind the move when speaking to the club’s official website.

“Torino had been tracking me for some time and I hope to do well here. I know this is a club that believes in young players and that is very important.

“I know I can learn so much in Italy, above all in terms of positioning, tactics and organisation, as those are fundamental here.

“I really want to experience this new adventure to the full. Thank you to Toro for having chosen me: now it’s up to me and I can’t wait to get started.”
