Liverpool & Man United Face Competition For Torino Star

Liverpool and Manchester United face another contender for the signature of Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna with Bayern Munich now on his trail.

talkSPORT told you last month that Liverpool, who need a replacement for Jamie Carragher, had scouts in attendance during Torino's 2-2 draw at Bologna.

The Reds have watched the Italy international several times this season and are keen to bring him to the Premier League.

Torino chairman Urbano Cairo has previously been unwilling to sanction the sale of the 24-year-old but La Gazzetta dello Sport claim the centre-back is now expected to depart in the summer.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who have already agreed a summer deal for Mario Gotze, are believed to have made preliminary enquiries, while AC Milan are also in the hunt.
