The £18million talent has just put in a “top-notch” performance ahead of his arrival at Tottenham this summer
Tottenham Hotspur talent Destiny Udogie impressed again on Saturday night as Udinese beat AC Milan 3-1.
Spurs endured a nightmare on Saturday afternoon as they squandered a 3-1 advantage over Southampton to earn a 3-3 draw.
Antonio Conte seems to be on a rampage once again and a split seems pretty obvious this summer.
That would mean Conte has no chance of working with full-back Udogie, who joins Spurs ahead of next season.
Leaving Conte could drop Tottenham’s full-back system but Udogie makes a real case to keep it.
Destiny Udogie shines again for Udinese
Udogie appeared as left-back for Udinese as they faced Serie A champions AC Milan on Saturday.
This proved to be a great night for Udinese who put the lead through Roberto Pereyra only for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to level.
Beto put Udinese ahead again and the win was sealed when Kingsley Ehizibue scored from an assist from Udogie.
Tuttomercatoweb was very impressed with Udogie, giving him a 7 out of 10 for his performance against Milan.
TMW explained that Udogie caused “total confusion” in the Milan defense with his runs up front, adding that his performance was “top notch”.
Tottenham quickly approached Udogie
Tottenham have been heavily criticized for their recruitment and to be honest it’s probably justified.
Yet when it comes to Udogie, Tottenham appear to have managed to step in quickly and secure a top talent.
Spurs struck a deal worth £15million last summer, rising to £18million for Udogie, allowing him to return to Udinese for the season on loan.
Udogie is leaving for Tottenham this summer but if Spurs had waited there is no doubt a number of other clubs would have wanted the 20-year-old.
This is a rare case of Tottenham ahead of the curve in the transfer market – but whether Conte Udogie actually trains remains to be seen.
