Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna was this morning undergoing a medical with Serie A champions Juventus ahead of a cross-city move.

The 25-year-old Italy centre-back has been a long-term target for the Bianconeri and, despite Juve director general Giuseppe Marotta revealing negotiations had stalled in recent weeks, he now appears close to completing a reported 10million euro transfer.

A statement published on juventus.com this morning read: "The 25-year-old defender is visiting Turin's Fornaca clinic and Medicina dello Sport center ahead of a proposed move to the Bianconeri."

Ogbonna played a key role in the heart of defence as promoted Torino booked a second season in the top flight and, having made his senior Italy debut against Poland in November 2011, he has collected six caps for the Azzurri.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
