Clubs queue up for Ogbonna

The number of clubs interested in Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna continues to grow, according to reports.

The central defender, who can also be used as a full-back, has been paired with Inter, Roma, Napoli and Juventus in Italy.

However, there is also interest in him from clubs in Spain, Germany and England. Portuguese giants Benfica are the latest side to be associated.

Toro are willing to sell him, even if President Urbano Cairo is optimistically asking for a massive €20m.

Ogbonna, born in May 1988, is a product of the club's youth system who spent the 2007-08 season on loan at Crotone.

Ogbonna was called up to the full Italy squad for the first time in June for the friendly against the Republic of Ireland. He wasn't used in the game though.

He's won 10 caps at Under-21 level.
