Destiny Udogie is set to fly to England next week to complete a move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Italian journalist has revealed that Udogie will travel to London on Monday ahead of undergoing a medical with Tottenham Hotspur the following day after the club reached an agreement with Udinese.

Udogie will then return to Udinese to spend the upcoming season with the Serie A outfit on loan as part of the deal ahead of their top flight opener against AC Milan at the San Siro on Saturday.

The 19-year-old left wing-back has been tipped for a call up to the senior Italian national team and is set to become Tottenham’s seventh signing of the summer.

Given the fact Udinese are in action at the weekend and their next game takes place seven days later, it makes sense as to why Udogie will travel to England at the start of the next week – hopefully, injury-free if he is involved against Milan.

There’s no doubt he has been deemed as a long-term investment for the club with Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon already providing plenty of cover on the left side of the pitch, allowing Udogie to continue to get first-team experience at Udinese this term.
