Udinese full-back Destiny Udogie admits he is eyeing a future in the Premier League as Tottenham Hotspur look into a potential £17 million deal for the Juventus target, speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport. 

This is a deal that will likely be placed on the backburner for the time being. 

After Fabio Paratici reportedly held talks with Udogie’s representatives in London, per Sky Sports, Udinese counterpart Pierpaolo Marino all-but ruled out the prospect of cashing in on the Italy U19 international after a single season with I Bianconeri. 

One of Serie A’s breakthrough stars is not too disappointed at being forced to stay for another campaign at the Stadio Friuli, however. Far from it. 

“My goal is to play with the Italian national team. The coach (Roberto Mancini) is watching me,” Udogie begins, via Mondo Udinese. 

“I’m fine at Udinese. I want to grow and improve here. In the future, I could go to the Premier League. I’d be glad to have an experience in England.”

Assuming the 19-year-old can build on his excellent 2021/22 campaign, you can bet your bottom dollar that Spurs will continue to keep tabs on him over the next 12 months or so. It’s not as if Udogie doesn’t have plenty of time on his side after all. 

“It is very nice to be approached by top-level clubs,” Udogie, who has also been linked with Juventus, said a couple of weeks ago.   

“I live serenely, thinking about the football pitch. My agents think about the market. They know my thoughts and have my total trust.” 

An attack-minded left-wing back who looks perfectly suited to Antonio Conte’s 3-4-2-1 formation, Udogie provided an impressive five goals and three assists for mid-table Udinese last term.  

Spurs appear to have the left-sided role nailed down for the time being, however. Ivan Perisic – arguably Serie A’s most consistent performer in 2021/22 – joins from Inter Milan. Ryan Sessegnon, meanwhile, has made real strides since Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at Spurs.
