According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are now close to signing Destiny Odoji from Udinese.
The North London club has been linked to Udogie a couple of months ago, but it looks like they’re about to finally get their man.
This will be Spurs’ seventh signing this summer and, interestingly, he will be the third full-back in this window after the arrivals of Ivan Perisic and Jadid Spence.
At just 19 years old, Udogie is one for the future, so Perisic may not need to worry about losing his spot anytime soon, but if the Nigerian continues to improve at the rate he has been, he could soon become a star for Tottenham. .
In fact, while Udogie was relatively unknown only 12 months ago, since earlier this year he has already started taking up another sport.
As an attacking full-back, Udogie has been at his best after the Serie A winter break, scoring no fewer than five goals and collecting four assists since mid-February.
In fact, Udogie’s recent record has seen him score eight goals in 14 games, and in all honesty, that’s a percentage that most strikers would be proud of.
In fact, Udogie’s five league goals since February is a better tally than Mohamed Salah in the same time period for Liverpool, while the number of goals he scored in the league is more than Marcus Rashford scored in the entirety of last season with Manchester United.
Udogie certainly has what it takes to be a real threat from wide areas, and there may not be a better manager to work with under Antonio Conte at the moment.
This 19-year-old could be an absolute gem of a signing and if Conte stays at Tottenham for a few more years, we could be looking at one of the best teams in the Premier League in a few years’ time.
