Paratici may have pulled off an unheralded masterstroke with £15m summer signing – TBR View
The transfer window has finally closed, and Tottenham Hotspur fans can finally fully focus on their on-pitch performances.
Antonio Conte’s side brought in eight new players, and let a number of household names leave.
All in all, it looks like a very positive window for Tottenham, and this has been reflected in their early results.
Spurs are currently unbeaten, and have just picked up their third home win on the bounce against Fulham.
Richarlison was the star of the show in his first start for the club, and was unlucky not to score.
However, Paratici may have pulled off a masterstroke with another of his summer signings.
Tottenham’s final signing of the window was 19-year-old Destiny Udogie.
Judging by his early performances this season, it might just be Tottenham’s best signing of the window.
Paratici may have pulled off Udogie masterstroke
Udogie is an exciting, attacking left-wing back, who has ‘extraordinary qualities’.
The Italian under-21 international has made headlines recently with his attacking output.
He’s already scored twice in Serie A this season, and finished last season brilliantly.
Udogie recorded five goals and two assist in the last 13 games of last season, an amazing record for a wing-back.
He’ll have no trouble fitting into Conte’s system, as Udinese also play with wing-backs.
Udogie is very comfortable on the ball, and loves driving at defenders with the ball at his feet.
He’s not the most motivated runner when it comes to defending, but this is something that Conte could certainly drill into Udogie.
It looks like Paratici has pulled off an absolute masterclass signing Udogie this summer.
He could slot straight into the Spurs squad alongside Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon.
Spurs fans will already be getting impatient about seeing Udogie in a Spurs shirt.
It’ll be interesting to see if Conte decides to integrate Udogie next summer or if they decide another loan move is needed.
