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.

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
