Tottenham Hotspur chief Fabio Paratici has held a meeting with agents in London as the Lilywhites now also eye an ‘extraordinary’ defender, according to Sky Sports.
The Lowdown: Spurs set for busy summer…
Having already confirmed both Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on Bosman deals, with a third in Premier League star Yves Bissouma reliably believed to be following them, it appears Spurs are showing no lack of ambition.
A full-back signing could well be next on the agenda for manager Antonio Conte as the north Londoners remain heavily linked with a Middlesbrough starlet Djed Spence.
The Latest: Paratici holds talks…
It is claimed that the exciting teenager’s representatives have been in London as they also work to lower their client’s valuation.
The Verdict: Get it done?
Who should Spurs sign next for Conte?
A star centre-back
Conte would ideally like two full-back signings according to Dan Kilpatrick, one for each flank, and we believe Udogie would be a brilliant candidate.
Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig recently raved over the 19-year-old’s sky high potential, calling the defender ‘versatile’ with ‘superb technique’ and ‘great positional sense’ (Facebook).
Udogie’s former manager, Gabriele Cioffi, branded the talent ‘extraordinary‘ alongside Serie A teammates Lazar Samardzic and Brandon Soppy.
These plaudits point to a transfer target who stands out as one of Italian top flight’s most promising players and a potential coup for Spurs.
