Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia and Toro's Angelo Ogbonna are both wanted by the two Premier League clubs.
"The transfer market is all about comparisons,” pointed out Torino President Urbano Cairo this weekend.
“If Inter request €20m for Ranocchia, then I say that for me Ogbonna is worth the same amount. I won’t compare him to Thiago Silva, but he is an important player who has a certain value.
“I kept hold of Ogbonna and am going to make the most of him during this season. It has to be his year of consecration.”
