Peter BrownellContributor IMay 20, 2013

FC Turino center-back Angelo Ogbonna is among the many players being tipped for a possible transfer in the summer window.

Here's a breakdown of his numbers and a brief scouting guide to the Italian international, along with a few hints as to where he might be playing next summer.

AGE: 25

CONTRACT SITUATION: Ogbonna has been at FC Turin since 2007 and is under contract until June of 2016. 

CAREER STOPS: Turino (2006-); Croton (loan, 2007-2008).

CURRENT CAMPAIGN: Serie A—21 games, 1 assist; Coppa Italia—1 game; Primavera—1 game; World Cup Qualifiers—1 game. 


SCOUTING GUIDE: Ogbonna actually plays as a left center-back for FC Turino.  The Italian international is tidy in possession and can competently start and attack from deep in his team's defensive third.  His silky left foot makes him a useful addition to any back line and he has a keen sense of where to position himself defensively. 

WHERE NEXT? Some of the most ambitious and richest clubs are interested in signing Ogbonna.

First up is English Premier League winners, Manchester United, who are said to be eying the Italian defender (Sky Sports).

Champions League finalists, Bayern Munich, are also apparently in the mix for Ogbonna (talkSPORT).

And then there is Liverpool, who according to reports (talkSPORT, h/t, will try and nab the footballing prowess of Ogbonna. 

Arsenal is also a suitor (Metro) and is said to have a better shot than the Reds. 

Any of the clubs mentioned would be a massive move for the young defender, who has the potential to be a mainstay in the Italian starting 11.
