Manchester United and Everton have reportedly sent scouts to watch Andrea Ranocchia and €20m-rated Angelo Ogbonna in tomorrow’s Torino-Inter clash.
According to Tuttosport, Sir Alex Ferguson has set his sights on the two Italian international defenders and faces competition from the Toffees.
Both players are expected to start on Sunday evening when Ogbonna’s Torino welcome Ranocchia’s Inter to the Stadio Olimpico.
“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.”
