Report: 'Extraordinary' Spurs target omitted from his club's latest matchday squad, move all-but done
It’s no secret that Tottenham Hotspur have all-but secured the signature of Udinese’s Destiny Udogie.
Over the past few days, speculation linking Spurs and the 19-year-old has been pointing in the right direction.
Earlier this week, the likes of Sky Sports claimed that Tottenham had agreed a deal with Udinese for Udogie.
Spurs will reportedly sign the 19-year-old for an initial £15million, which could rise to £20million with add-ons.
Furthermore, Tottenham will apparently allow Udinese to keep hold of Udogie on loan next season.
The next step will be a medical ahead of the player putting pen to paper on his Spurs contract, according to reports.
Indeed, Fabrizio Romano noted how Udinese haven’t even included Udogie in their latest matchday squad.
The Zebrette are away at AC Milan today – one of the most difficult fixtures of the whole campaign for the visitors.
Udinese don’t want to take any risks with Udogie ahead of his imminent move to Spurs, Romano said.
Tottenham are getting their hands on a top talent in Udogie.
He is “the future of the Italian national team”, according to Romano.
Udogie joined Udinese last summer, arriving on a loan deal from boyhood club Hellas Verona.
He enjoyed a solid breakthrough campaign with Le Zebrette, with seven goals and five assists from 37 matches.
The Italy Under-21 international joined Udinese permanently this summer as part of an obligation to buy.
Now, the Zebrette are cashing in on him, and Tottenham are eager to get him on their books.
Gabriele Cioffi has described Udogie as ‘extraordinary‘ and he looks to have a big future in the game.
