Napoli battle Liverpool, Dortmund for Ola Aina


Chelsea youngster, Ola Aina is wanted by Italian Serie A side Napoli but they will have to battle Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool for his services.

The 19-year-old with Nigerian roots can play in several defensive positions, including centre-half, left-back or even at right-back and has excelled for the Blues developmental sides but has not broken into Jose Mourinho’s side.

However, he is a mainstay with the England U-21 setup and impressed Jose Mourinho during Chelsea’s post and pre-season friendlies, after signing a professional contract at the club in 2013.

According to the Mirror, Maurizio Sarri’s men have joined the race for Aina and will compete with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool for his signature who are also desperate to land the youngster.

Napoli suffered a rare 3-2 loss to Bologna last weekend and are currently placed third on the Serie A log, just two points behind league leaders Inter Milan.
