Ogbonna: I like Milan, but...

In-demand Torino stopper Angelo Ogbonna has revealed a weakness for one particular Serie A giant.

Ogbonna is widely regarded as one of Italy's brightest young defenders and he's expected to join a big club at some stage in the future.

"I do like Milan," he admitted when asked about his footballing preferences. "However, that doesn't mean that I will end up going there..."

Ogbonna, who has been called up to the full Italian international squad despite his Serie B status, has been paired with a host of clubs over the last 12 months.

Juventus were associated in the summer, as were the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal. Liverpool, over the last few weeks, have also been mentioned.

"I didn't know about the Liverpool link," he responded when quizzed on his future. "I don't follow the transfer market…"

Torino President Urbano Cairo did value him as highly as €20m during the summer.
