Toro expect Milan interest in Ogbonna

Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi  expects to be contacted by Milan regarding a possible bid for Angelo Ogbonna.

The 24-year-old has been paired with the Rossoneri in the past and he could be sold at the end of the season.

“Milan may think about him,” Petrachi told Sport Italia. “He is a player who represents the future of the Italian national side.

“He really is lacking nothing. He’s strong physically and technically, as well as having the right kind of attitude.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see Milan take an interest because he represents the top of Italian defenders.”

Ogbonna, however, wouldn’t come cheap as Toro chief Urbano Cairo values him at around €20m.

“He has an important asking price,” the former Nottingham Forest player added. “The President has already turned down a few offers for him.

“Last January, for example, a club tabled a bid of over €10m.”
