Arsenal are readying an offer for Italian defender Angelo Ogbonna according to talkSPORT.

This source claims that an offer in the region of £15m would be accepted by Torino and though the Serie A side are hoping to extend the 24 year old’s contract with the club it is entirely possible he may be tempted by a move to join the North London club.

Ogbonna helped Torino to promotion to the top tier and has continued to impress and is now a firm part of the Italian national team set-up.

Though Arsenal have three quality international centre-backs in Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny Arsene Wenger has seen his side make basic errors on a regular basis this season and may well feel the addition of another solid defender could help beef up his back-line.

Ogbonna is just one of a myriad of targets Wenger reportedly has lined up with a £70m transfer kitty being handed to the Gunners boss in the hope of improving a squad that is likely to once again fail to secure any silverware.
