Reported Liverpool transfer target Angelo Ogbonna says he is flattered with news of interest from the Reds and has hinted he would be open to a move to Merseyside in the future.

The 24-year-old central defender continues to impress with a number of commanding displays in Serie A, and had been in Italy's squad for their World Cup 2014 double-header before withdrawing.

Liverpool have reportedly been monitoring Ogbonna as Brendan Rodgers makes plans to bring reinforcements to Anfield during the January transfer window, and defence could be a department the Reds boss may be tempted to bolster.

Ogbonna would certainly do just that, and admits that the idea of a transfer to Liverpool is one that he would find appealing - but is not prepared to get ahead of himself at this present time.

"It is flattering to be linked with Liverpool football club, one of the biggest clubs in the world. It's very famous," he told Sky Sports.

"However, my contract with Torino expires in 2016 and I like Torino as a club. But you never know."

Should he move to Liverpool, Ogbonna would compete with Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger for a starting berth in central defence, but may find it hard to budge the impressive pairing.
