Ogbonna told to snub Milan

Angelo Ogbonna will become a better player by staying loyal to Torino, says former Granata stopper Pasquale Bruno.

Ogbonna, despite being in Serie B, has caught the eye of Italy boss Cesare Prandelli and he's on the radar of Italy's top clubs.

However, amidst suggestions that Milan are lining up a bid, Bruno has urged the centre-back to continue his adventure in Turin.

"I would advise Ogbonna to stay where he is," Bruno told TMW. "Especially if Torino are promoted and are in Serie A next season.

"He still has to improve despite his excellent potential and he would find it tough at a club like Milan to play regularly.

"You also have to factor in that if Torino want to be protagonists in the top Division then they'll need his help.

"He has really become more secure under Coach Giampiero Ventura this season and I hope Torino President Urbano Cairo does everything necessary to keep him.

"He can play at full-back, but he'll become a great centre-back!"

Ogbonna was paired with Premiership giants Arsenal over the summer, while clubs in Spain were also keen.

Cairo claimed before the start of this season that the Italian was worth somewhere in the region of €20m.
