Liverpool are ready to firm up their interest in Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna. Despite Toro's Serie B status, Ogbonna has been involved with the Italy senior squad this year.

The Granata expect Liverpool to bid for their star defender in January and have learned a €16 million offer is being drawn up.

Ogbonna remarked last week: "Liverpool? A dream club, I love the Premier League and one day maybe I'll play there."
