Torino director Gianluca Petrachi said only a ‘sensational offer’ for Angelo Ogbonna would see the club release their star centre-back.

The 24-year-old defender, who can also play at left-back, played a key role in Torino’s promotion to Serie A ahead of next season, and his fine form was rewarded with a place in Italy’s squad for Euro 2012.

Ogbonna has been linked with a host of top clubs in recent weeks, including AC Milan, but Petrachi told all interested parties that Torino have no intention of letting their youth-team product leave on the cheap.

“We have already spoken about this several times: only a sensational offer will shift our stance,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

When asked if a bid of 12 million euros would be acceptable, Petrachi replied: “I believe that it would require much more (than that).”

Ogbonna, who made his international debut against the United States in February, is reportedly in contention to start against Spain in Gdansk on June 10.
