Arsenal Join Race For Torino Defender Angelo Ogbonna

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to engage with the likes of Ac Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli for the services of Italian-Nigerian defender Angelo Ogbonna.

The versatile 23-year-old has stamped his authority in the Seria B with Torino having growed under the ranks of several low-league club, and he's now generating interest from the biggest names in club football.

Despite his current club's wish to hang on to him -reports emanating from Italy believe the afore-mentioned clubs are prepared to bid for him mainly because of his ability to switch between the center-half role and the left-back position with effortless ease coupled with his effectiveness and commanding presence at the back.

Suffice to say, that at 6ft'2in and a price tag of between €10-15m he ticks the relevant boxes of prudent buyers.
