Tottenham have announced the signing of Destiny Udogie from Udinese.
The 19-year-old will spend the 2022/23 campaign back on loan with the Bianconeri with a view to joining up with Spurs’ first-team next summer.
90min previously reported that Brighton too were interested in Udogie, but were unable to meet Udinese’s demands and Tottenham were able to complete his signing for around €25m.
Udogie, who is said to be closing in on a call-up to Roberto Mancini’s senior Italy squad, scored five goals and laid on four assists for Udinese last season after signing from hometown club Hellas Verona.

Tottenham already signed a left wing-back earlier this summer when they brought in Ivan Perisic from Inter on a free transfer. He will compete with Ryan Sessegnon for a place in the starting lineup this season, though Sergio Reguilon has been deemed surplus to requirements.
90min understands that Spurs are continuing to push for the signing of Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma. The Giallorossi recently rejected the north Londoners’ bid to take the Italian on loan with an obligation to buy for an initial €25m and are believed not to have been impressed by such a low offer.
