Man City and Man Utd to do battle for West Ham defender Ogbonna

Angelo Ogbonna is the subject of interest from Premier League giants Manchester City and Manchester United.

According to The Times, the Manchester rivals are set to do battle for the signature of the West Ham United defender this summer.

Italy international Ogbonna, 27, has been a star for the Hammers since joining from Juventus in July last year and has attracted the attention of both City and the Red Devils.

City's central defensive stocks have been under question this season with Eliaquim Mangala, Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis all underperforming in the absence of Vincent Kompany while United are looking to add to their centre-back options which includes Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones.
