Ogbonna plays down move talk

12 October 2009 03:31
Italy Under-21 international Angelo Ogbonna has insisted he knows nothing about reported interest from England. The 21-year-old defender has come through the youth system at Serie B Torino and is now attracting admiring glances from both Italy and abroad. Arsenal, who are also rumoured to be looking at Bari defenders Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Ranocchia, are said to be leading the chase for Ogbonna. And the Gunners' Premier League rivals Manchester City are also thought to be showing a strong interest. But Ogbonna insists he knows nothing about all the current speculation. "All this talk is paper talk, I don't know anything about it," he said. "People talk about those teams because I am told I will do well in that league and I am built for that league, but let's wait and see. "I am happy in Torino at the moment, but teams like Arsenal and Man City are very big teams attractive to any youngsters." Despite making his Under-21 bow for Italy, the nation of his birth, Nigeria are still hoping Ogbonna will switch international allegiance to them.
