Liverpool and Manchester United will have to fend off interest from Champions League finalists Bayern Munich if they’re to lure Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna to the Premier League, according to talkSPORT.

The report claims Liverpool sent representatives to watch Torino’s 2-2 draw at Bologna last month for what was one of several scouting trips to watch the talented Ogbonna this season, as boss Brendan Rodgers lines up potential replacements for the retiring Jamie Carragher.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson could also be on the look-out for reinforcements at the back with Rio Ferdinand coming towards the end of his illustrious career, while doubts continue over the long-term fitness of Nemanja Vidic.

Torino have always insisted that Ogbonna won’t be sold but talkSPORT claim the Serie A outfit have decided to cash-in and sell this summer, with Bayern Munich understood to have made preliminary enquiries for the Italian international  defender.

The 24-year-old has emerged as one of the finest central defenders in Serie A over the past two seasons and it seems Liverpool and United will have to move fast if they want to bring him to England at the end of the season.

    This season current team never too strong and can compete to higher level.Downing,Henderson,Skrtel, Lucas Leiva,Borini cannot meet our expectation.They just better players and not a exellent players….they cannot been push to another level.Dissapointed,frusting and let us down.They all should be ship out next with carroll and Spearing too.Lucas now look improving his performance but not so creative.LFC need to be rebuilding back but must go on roght track and wisely.We cannot depent to deadwood or any passenger who coming to complete name list team.Christian Eriksen,Henrikh Mkhitaryan,Edison Cavani,Gonzalo Higuin,Lucas Biglia,Mamadou Sakho,Matts Hummells,Andre Ters Stegen will be great addition players next season ( if we can get sign ).But plaese work hard to get our dream target players to coming and playing for LFC.We need to sign worldclass players to be back bone to the clubs.Please look to richer clubs,why they be good clubs.Example Real Madrid,they should become a bankrupcy because sign in expensive player.But now ?? Where are Real Madrid level now??
