Torino have claimed that Manchester United have been keeping a close eye on their centre-back Angelo Ogbonna.

The 24-year-old forced his way into Italy's Euro 2012 squad after helping his team clinch promotion back to Serie A and the Turin club have suggested that scouts from Old Trafford and a host of others have been sent to watch him.

But sporting director Gianluca Petrachi insists Torino will not let Ogbonna leave unless they receive a fee of at least £16million.

"I guarantee there are observers of many foreign clubs, who follow our games, including United's scouts," Petrachi told The Sun.

"Most of the time they come just to see Ogbonna because he is a player who has great potential. Last year we refused £10m for him but it is clear he is worth more than £16m.

"Angelo has the desire to do better but I believe he should continue to grow with Torino."
