Ogbonna has been in sensational form this season for the Turin club as well as the Italian National team and has been attracting attention, not only from Arsenal but both Liverpool and Manchester United have sent scouts in recent weeks.
Arsene Wenger is desperate to add defensive reinforcements this summer and while Ogbonna is open to a move to the Premier League, he wants to move to a club that is playing Champions League football:
“A move abroad? Why not? My dream is to play in a Champions League final.”
Reports in Italy suggest that Arsenal will face competition from other Serie A clubs; however it is unlikely that any of them will be prepared to pay the £17m asking price.
