Tottenham eyes wonderkid Edogie

Tottenham have turned their searchlight towards Udinese defender Destiny Udogie after a report from England claimed the North London club have already contacted the player’s representative.

According to Tuttosport, Udogie is pleased with the news that a top European club is interested in him, adding that while he concentrates on the pitch doing his job, he has trusted representatives to handle the discussions.

“It is very nice to be approached by top-level clubs,” Udogie responded elatedly. “I live serenely, thinking about the football pitch. My agents think about the market. They know my thoughts and have my total trust.” he noted.

Reportedly, the 19-yearold Italy U21 left-back will suit Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 formation at Tottenham with his attacking-minded style which resulted in 5 Serie A goals in 35 appearances last season. However, Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino has ruled out Udogie’s possible move to Tottenham according to HITC.

Marino claimed that it is inconceivable to sell a player who has barely completed a year in Stadio Friuli from Hellas Verona. According to him, the player’s actual value can not be determined presently by Le Zebrette, who need more time to come up with the right value for the attackingminded left-back.

“We’re not used to selling our talents after one season,” Marino said. “It’s difficult to see Udogie leaving this summer. “We’re convinced that if he stays with us for another season, we’ll have a clearer idea of his val-ue. “His current price tag is difficult to determine after just one season,” he claimed.

Le Zebrette had earlier turned down bids from their neighbouring Juventus and also Tottenham but reports claim Udogie is valued at £17m judging by his performance in the 2021/22 season in Italy.
