Ogbonna to stay, but Bianchi…

Torino boss Giampiero Ventura insists that Angelo Ogbonna will remain, but he’s left the door open for a Rolando Bianchi exit.

Ogbonna and Bianchi are the club’s most prized assets and also players who are on the radars of other clubs.

“Bianchi is fully focused, but I’m not the one who should be saying whether he’ll stay or go,” the tactician told Tuttosport.

“As for Ogbonna, he should stay with us for another season.

“I’m satisfied with the club’s work in the transfer market so far. Now we need a left-back and a pacey attacker.

“Once the squad is complete then we can say with some certainty what our objective for the season will be.”

Bianchi, 29, is a much travelled striker who has been at the newly promoted club since his 2008 transfer from Manchester City via Lazio.

Ogbonna is an Italian international centre-back who the outfit value at over €15m.
