Chelsea highly rated young defender Ola Aina failed to impress in their 2-1 loss to West Ham in the EFL Cup. A tie watched by coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr.

The right full back was substituted after 67 minutes as he struggled to cope with the pace of the game, leaving manager Antonio Conte with no option but to replace him Pedro Rodriguez.

Aina is part of the players Nigeria are keen on persuading to switch allegiance to the Super Eagles after representing England at youth level.

Already captain of the Nigeria senior national team Mikel Obi has urged the 19 year old to shun England and commit to Nigeria. He was suppose to also arrange talks for Rohr to speak with Aina over his plans for him in the Nigeria national team.

However as at the time of filing in this report, we are yet to hear from our sources in London on if the meeting will still take place or otherwise.
