Manchester United and Arsenal both eye Juve man Ogbonna

United and Arsenal both eye Juve man Ogbonna

Manchester United are keen on a move for Italy international Angelo Ogbonna, with Arsenal also monitoring the situation.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Premier League giants are interested in a January move for the Juventus defender.

Ogbonna, who has nine caps for his country, is a centre-back who can play on either side, and has done in a back three for the Bianconeri this season.
That could be considered a plus for Louis van Gaal, who started the season playing with three centre-backs, before reverting to a back four when injuries forced his hand.
Arsene Wenger’s men also need to strengthen defensively, with new boy Calum Chambers currently the only senior back-up to both centre-backs Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny and injured right-back Mathieu Debuchy.
The 26-year-old only joined the Old Lady from local rivals Torino in 2013, making 24 appearances in all competitions last year and collecting a Scudetto winner’s medal.
Much will depend on how much game time Ogbonna gets under Max Allegri between now and the opening of the transfer window, but a move – which could cost around £12m – may be less likely if he continues to play regularly.
So far the defender has appeared in all five Serie A fixtures but missed out on the Champions League win over Malmo.
