Tottenham Hotspur, Extend deal with Udinese For Udogie!

Sources revealed that Tottenham Hotspur had signed a deal worth more than €15m for the transfer of Udinese sensation Destiny Udogie. After agreeing on personal terms with Udogie a few days ago, the people of north London have reached an agreement with the Serie A side. His excellent form has attracted the interest of many top European clubs. Though the 19-year-old enjoyed his own successful campaign in the last period, scoring five goals and three assists in Serie A.

However, the Italian Under-21 international will only move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2023, as he will be on loan at Udinese this season. Udogie primarily worked as a left winger in the previous season, although he did show versatility playing as a left-back and central midfielder. Conte will rely on Ryan Sessengon and Ivan Perisic at left-back this season, and Udogie is one for the future.

Although after almost completing their business in the transfer market, Tottenham is now focused on weeding out the marginalized.  They could sign one more with Niccol Zaniolo and Memphis Depay on the wish list. Conte’s side got off to a great start to the 2022/23 Premier League season by beating Southampton 4-1 in their opening match. This Sunday, they will take on rival Chelsea from London in a delightful match.

What country does Udogie play for?

As well as Udogie was born in Italy and has represented them at all levels, from under-16 to under-20. He, too, is eager for a high-profile invitation, as he feels more Italian than Nigerian. Udogie said he hopes to follow in the footsteps of players like Angelo Ogbonna, who chose to represent Azurris in the Super Eagles.

Moreover, he had an outstanding season in the 2021/22 season, in which he scored eight goals: five goals and three assists in thirty-five games. He is one of the best-rated youngsters in Italy, as coach Roberto Mancini invited him to a possible 2-day camp for the Italian national team. The player’s contribution to Serie A last season was second only to full-back Christian Perisic in the league. By the way, the Croatian is now also at Tottenham.

The Last word:

Therefore, it’s confirmed that the left will spend the season on loan at Udinese to continue developing. The star will be the second young full-back to join Tottenham this summer. The Spurs also signed 21-year-old Djed Spence from Middlesbrough. However, Spence impressed while on loan at Nottingham Forest in the previous spell, helping the European Cup winners of yore to promotion to the top flight for the first time in two decades.
