Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on highly-rated Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna, but face stiff competition for his signature.
The Italy Under 21 international, who is also being monitored by Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan, is believed to have caught the eye of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
Tipped to shine on the biggest stage, Ogbonna has been instrumental in Torino's promotion push from Serie B this season, with the Turin outfit currently in third position.
The 21-year-old, who is of Nigerian descent, is aware he is being tracked by Europe's elite, but remains level-headed yet open minded about his future.
"I know exactly what I want and I am not closing the door on anything. My objective is to improve and reach the highest level," he said in The Sun.
"My first dream has been achieved and I have managed to make my professional debut.
"There will be time to see what the options are with other clubs."
