Ogbonna to Juventus on Monday

Juventus will officially announce the signing of Angelo Ogbonna from city rivals Torino on Monday, claims La Stampa.

The Turin outfits have been in talks for the centre-back in recent times and a deal could be finally concluded at the start of next week.

Toro are set to net cash and the co-ownership of Ciro Immobile, a striker who spent last season at Genoa, in return for the 25-year-old defender.

Ogbonna grew up in the Toro youth ranks and has been with the club for all of his career apart from a season’s loan at Crotone in 2007-08.

The Italian international, who didn’t make the Confederations Cup squad this summer, will sign a five-year contract.

He will earn €1.8m a season after tax, plus bonuses.

Ogbonna will be the club’s third major signing ahead of 2013-14 after Juve secured deals for Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente and Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez.
