During the previous summer, Tottenham Hotspur completed the signing of Destiny Udogie from Udinese but immediately loaned him back to the Serie A club for the duration of the season, writes the SW.
The transfer was negotiated under the management of Antonio Conte at the North London club, although he has since been replaced by Ange Postecoglou earlier this month.
Udogie’s agent, Stefano Antonelli, recently spoke with Sky Italia, as reported by Calciomercato, and revealed that the left-back has impressed the new Tottenham manager.
Additionally, Ferdinando Guarino, an agent associated with Udogie’s agency, previously mentioned that the player has garnered interest from several admirers.
Udogie represented the Italy U21 squad in the European Championship, where they were eliminated during the group stages. Antonelli has now disclosed that Tottenham have been in touch to discuss their immediate plans for the defender.
Antonelli said: “Udogie’s story is clear. He’s from Tottenham and we’ve also had contacts in the last few days because they’ve changed the management, the coach and because they’ll play 4-3-3 and no longer 3-5-2,” he said.
“Postecoglu is convinced of Udogie’s space, but the Italians are calling because some think he needs another step, perhaps in an Italian top club such as Juventus, AC Milan or Inter Milan.”
“But today I received a call from the head of the technical area who asked us to confirm the program after Italy U21 left the European championship,”
“They want to take him on tour in Thailand. They guarantee us the importance of the player to date, we will evaluate everything, but he is from Tottenham.”
