'Will fly to London on Monday': Romano says Tottenham will make 'extraordinary' signing next week
Fabrizio Romano has provided a fresh update on the state of play involving Tottenham Hotspur and Destiny Udogie.
Spurs have already made six signings this summer, and now they’re seemingly closing in on one for the future.
Spurs will reportedly sign the 19-year-old for an initial £15million, which could rise to £20million with add-ons.
Furthermore, Tottenham will allow Udinese to keep hold of Udogie on loan next season, it is believed.
Some reports did suggest the player would remain in Italy to undergo his medical and sign the Spurs contract.
However, Romano has now claimed that Udogie will be coming to north London after all.
The transfer insider said the Italian would fly to London on Monday to complete the formalities of his Spurs switch.
Romano then said Udogie would sign his Tottenham contract on Tuesday afternoon before returning to Udinese.
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 seem 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.
