Spurs agree terms with Destiny Udogie

Tottenham Hotspur have agreed on personal terms with Destiny Udogie…

What’s the word?

Italian transfer guru and journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the situation to supporters on Twitter.

“Full agreement on personal terms between Destiny Udogie, his agents and Tottenham, five year contract. Deal expected to be completed next week with Udinese,” he said.

“[Fabio] Paratici and [Antonio] Conte want Udogie as part of future project, so he could be loaned back to Udinese.”

Should Spurs be paying £21m for Udogie?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

Imagine him and Heung-min Son

Spurs have enjoyed a rather busy summer off the pitch, signing no fewer than six fresh faces and a seventh appears to be on the horizon in Udogie.

Whilst the Lilywhites won’t get to witness his potential anytime soon, he is a signing for the future and that goes in line with some of their other bits of business in recent windows, having signed Pape Matar Sarr and Bryan Gil with the long-term in mind.

It also ties in with Antonio Conte’s recent comments that he could be here for the foreseeable future, too.

“For sure we want to continue to improve, to build something important for this club,” he said (via talkSPORT). “If the idea continues to be in this way, there will be zero problems to continue my life in Tottenham because I stay well and I like this group of players and I have a good relationship with Paratici and with Daniel Levy.”

In the short-term, the left wing-back role is likely to be filled by Ivan Perisic, 33, but the longevity of him playing that position still very much remains to be seen.

Udogie is a hugely exciting young talent, having broken through at Udinese last season. He provided five goals and three assists across 35 appearances, via Transfermarkt.

Such form and quality has seen him lauded as “extraordinary” by former manager Gabriele Cioffi, whilst talent scout Jacek Kulig has described him as a “tenacious tackler,” as well as “hard-working and charismatic.”

Just imagine this type of player bombing down the wing with Heung-min Son in support on the left flank. The South Korean has only just entered his thirties and appears to be in the form of his life still, so by the time Udogie makes his emergence in north London, he should still be Spurs’ main man.

He provided an assist in the opening game of the season – a 4-1 win over Southampton – and this merely continued on from last season’s exploits of 24 goals and ten assists in all competitions.

A £21m investment in Udogie certainly suggests that the club view him as someone who can break into Conte’s starting XI eventually and as Romano claims, Conte wants him to sign, too.

The Italian head coach could form a mouthwatering partnership in the future.

AND in other news, Spurs could seal “unstoppable” 7th signing in £10m “animal” with Paratici “a huge fan”
