Angelo Ogbonna

A new arrival in the 2013 summer transfer window after making the short journey from Torino, Angelo Ogbonna joins Juventus with a reputation as one of the best defenders in Italy.

A regular in Cesare Prandelli’s Italy squad who was last year called up to represent the Azzurri in UEFA Euro 2012, the 25-year-old of Nigerian descent is a strong physical presence, supremely calm on the ball and extraordinarily athletic.

Born in Cassino, Ogbonna’s raw qualities were noted at an early age by the Granata, who swooped to add  him to their academy.

A loan spell at Serie C1 outfit Crotone during the 2007/08 season enabled him to experience regular first-team action, making 22 starts for the Calabria-based side in a fundamental campaign in his development.

A return to Turin saw him push for a regular spot in the starting line-up, becoming a permanent fixture throughout the 2008/09 season.

After playing a crucial role in Torino’s 2011/12 promotion-winning side, Ogbonna capped off a memorable year by forming part of Cesare Prandelli’s Euro 2012 squad.

The centre back gives Antonio Conte another strong option for his already formidable Juve rearguard, and has the potential to go on to achieve great things in the black and white stripes.
