Torino reject bids for duo

Torino President Urbano Cairo claims that he has rejected January offers for Angelo Ogbonna and Rolando Bianchi.

Napoli targeted the defender, while Bianchi was associated with a number of top-flight sides over recent months.

"I turned down an €8m offer for Ogbonna from Napoli which included a bonus of another €2m which would have been easily attainable," Cairo noted.

"As for Bianchi, I received an offer for him not too long ago from an important club," he continued. "I responded by saying 'no thank you'. I was not going to sell our captain and bomber."

Serie B side Torino are desperately trying to get back into the top flight and are currently joint-sixth, 10 points behind co-leaders Siena, Atalanta and Novara.
