Tottenham: Full agreement reached for Destiny Udogie

Tottenham: Full agreement reached for Destiny Udogie -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur have reached a full agreement with Udinese over the transfer of left-back Destiny Udogie, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Udogie’s short Udinese career

The 19-year-old came through the Hellas Verona academy before the Serie A outfit signed him last summer on loan with an obligation to buy for just under £4m.

Mainly operating as a left-sided midfielder last season, Udogie made 35 appearances in the Italian top-flight during the 2021/22 campaign, producing an impressive five goals and three assists.

The defender has also amassed four appearances for Italy’s U21 national side, having been tipped for a senior call-up at the next international break.

The Latest: Romano’s news

Romano has shared an update on Spurs’ pursuit of the youngster, revealing the Premier League club have now come to an agreement with Udinese.

Taking to Twitter, the reliable journalist confirmed:

“Destiny Udogie to Tottenham, here we go. Full agreement reached with Udinese for more than €20m – after personal terms in place. Talented Italian fullback will be Spurs player in 2023, wanted by Paratici.

“Udogie will stay at Udinese for one more year on loan.”

The Verdict: Promising long-term signing

Looking at the 19-year-old’s underlying stats, it is clear to see why Fabio Paratici was so keen on securing the player’s signature for Antonio Conte’s side.

Compared with positional peers across Europe over the past-year, he ranked in the 99th percentile for non-penalty expected goals and in the 88th percentile for touches in the attacking penalty area (FBRef). This is a player who loves bombing forward and playing on the front foot, also registering in the 84th percentile for pressures.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Hailed as an ‘incredible talent’ with the ‘perfect physical attributes for the Premier League’ by journalist Josh Bunting, this could be a fantastic long-term signing for the Lilywhites, given he has over a decade left to grow and perform playing at the top level.

Paratici may have pulled a master-stroke getting this deal across the line.
