Tottenham are trying for Udinese’s highly-rated left-back Destiny Udogie.
Udinese want around £25m for the 19-year-old Italy U21 international, who has also attracted interest from Manchester City, Inter Milan and Brighton.
The Italian side also want Udogie – who still has four years left on his contract with the Serie A outfit – back on loan, something Tottenham are willing to do to allow him to continue his development.

The Udinese full-back is very interested in the possibility of working with Antonio Conte, who has personally recommended the signing to Spurs’ hierarchy.
Udogie is thought to be close to being called up by Roberto Mancini for the Italian national team and it is hoped gaining experience at a top international club will only help further his cause.
Udogie made his Serie A debut in the 2020-21 season with Hellas Verona before moving to Udinese.
Udogie scored five goals and laid on three assists in 35 league appearances last season
He has since become one of the biggest revelations in Italy, scoring five goals and laying on three assists in 35 league appearances last season.
Now Spurs are hoping director of football Fabio Paratici’s good relations with Italian clubs can help get a deal over the line.
Meanwhile Tottenham’s 6ft 6ins striker Kion Etete, 20, is joining Cardiff City in a £500,000 deal which will include a buy-back option.
