Fabrizio Romano has reported on Twitter Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing Destiny Udogie from Udinese in the summer transfer window.
The well-known and respected journalist has claimed Tottenham have reached a full agreement with Udinese over a €20m (£17m) deal for the left-back.
Romano added that Tottenham’s managing director of football Fabio Paratici wanted to sign the 19-year-old Italian.
The Italian journalist has further claimed that Udogie remains on loan at Udinese for this season.
