Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna is wanted by Manchester United and Everton. The Sun says the Torino centre-back, 24, has shone over the past two seasons, helping his club win promotion back to Serie A.
Ogbonna, born in Italy to Nigerian parents, is under contract until 2016 and rated at around £16million.
The defender who can also play at left-back, was called up by Italy while still a Serie B player.
And a Torino club source said: "Ogbonna would not have any problems in adapting to English football."
