Ola Aina, the Nigerian defender, recently bid farewell to his teammates at Serie A side Torino amidst heavy interest from some English Premier League clubs. While Aina played an important role for the team, his efforts were not enough to secure their place in the Serie A top flight. However, Torino’s Technical Director Davide Vagnati aims to strengthen the squad for the upcoming season, and they are now reportedly interested in Nigerian striker Cyriel Dessers.
According to reports, Torino are poised to engage in a transfer tussle with Glasgow Rangers for the signature of Dessers, who has caught the attention of both clubs. While earlier reports indicated that Rangers were interested in the striker, the progress of their negotiations has been slow, potentially jeopardizing their chance to replace Alfredo Morelos, whose contract recently expired with the Gers.
Dessers, who previously played a season in Serie A, may be inclined to remain in Italy rather than face the challenge of adapting to a new league. This potential setback for Rangers could hinder their plans for rebuilding the team and finding a replacement for Morelos.
No official comments have been made by Cremonese or the player regarding his future, but Dessers’ reluctance to play in the second division adds an intriguing twist to the ongoing transfer saga. His skills and abilities are viewed as an ideal fit for Torino’s project, and it remains to be seen which club he will end up at.
In the meantime, Torino will have to find a suitable replacement for Aina, who has been a key player for the team. With the new season fast approaching, fans and pundits alike will be eagerly anticipating the next move in this exciting transfer saga.
