Angelo Ogbonna: Torino central defender reveals Premier League ambition
Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna has revealed that he is open to moving to the Premier League in the future.
The 24-year-old has been with the Turin club all his career and has established himself as a regular first-choice centre-back.
Ogbonna, who has appeared four times for the Italy national team and was part of the Azzurri's Euro 2012 squad, says that he is fascinated by English football.
"I had many offers (in the summer) but I chose to stay here and I'm happy to have made it," he told Tuttosport.
"[Coach Giampiero] Ventura has influenced me more than anyone else.
"I've always been happy here. I have a long contract with Torino, I will give my best this season, then we'll see.
"I would go abroad willingly. I would like to experience other cultures. English football fascinates me, but the style is similar to Torino's one. And I speak English."
