thumbnail Hello,

The 24-year-old has made a real name for himself this season in the heart of the Granata's promotion-winning defence, but his club will do their utmost to hold onto him

Torino director Gianluca Petrachi has revealed that the club will only consider allowing Angelo Ogbonna leave if they receive a "sensational offer" for the defender's services.

The 24-year-old centre-back, who can also play at left-back, played a key role in the Granata's promotion to Serie A this season and his fine form was rewarded with a place in Italy's squad for Euro 2012.

Ogbonna has been linked with a host of top clubs, including AC Milan, in recent weeks, but Petrachi has warned all interested parties that Torino have no intention of letting their youth-team product leave on the cheap.

"We have already spoken about this several times: only a sensational offer will shift our stance," he told Sky Sport Italia.

When asked if a bid of €12 million would be acceptable, Petrachi replied: "I believe that it would require much more [than that]."

Ogbonna, who earned his second Azzurri cap against the United States in February, is reportedly in contention to start against Spain in Gdansk on June 10.
