Tottenham have confirmed their seventh signing of the summer, bringing in Destiny Udogie from Udinese on a five-year deal.
Tottenham Have Confirmed Their Seventh Signing Of The Summer. Udogie, 19, played 35 times for Udinese in Serie A last season, scoring 5 goals and assisting twice.
He was initially on loan from Hellas Verona before his current side made the deal permanent for £3.6m this summer.
Although Spurs did not mention a figure, Fabrizio Romano set the fee at €18m (£15.14m) meaning a nice profit for Udinese.
Djed Spence arrived at the club this summer and will compete with Emerson Royale and Matt Doherty for a place this season, but Udogie will back himself to win minutes next campaign.
Highly-rated and already playing top level football, this looks like a smart investment from Spurs.
Even if he does not develop into a starting right-back, he should retain his value at such a young age.
