Ogbonna ‘flattered’ by Reds link

Torino centre-back Angelo Ogbonna admits he is flattered by

reports linking him with Liverpool – but is happy with life at the

Italian club.

The 24-year-old Italian has impressed for the Serie A club in

recent seasons to reportedly turn the head of the Merseysiders.

Ogbonna is contracted at Torino until 2016 but admits

speculation of Liverpool’s interest is nice to hear.

He told Sky Sports: “It is flattering to be linked with

Liverpool football club, one of the biggest clubs in the world.

It’s very famous.

“However, my contract with Torino expires in 2016 and I like

Torino as a club. But you never know.”

Ogbonna has withdrawn from the Italy squad ahead of the World

Cup qualifying matches against Armenia and Denmark.
