TOTTENHAM have approached Udinese over signing defender Destiny Udogie, according to reports.
Udogie, 19, has reportedly attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, as well as Inter Milan.
But Spurs are hoping to reach an agreement with Udinese soon and are prepared to spend £21million on the left-back, report Sky Italia.
Tottenham plan to loan Udogie back to Udinese once he has signed to continue his development in Italy, having scored five goals in 35 games for the Serie A side last season.
Manchester City could rival Spurs’ bid for the wonderkid after reportedly making an enquiry.
Brighton could also reignite their interest in the defender – the Seagulls were said to have had an eye on Udogie earlier in the window.
It is possible Brighton would offer Udogie first-team football straight away as left-back Marc Cucurella appears to be heading to Chelsea.
The Blues were believed to have reached a £52.5million deal to sign the Spaniard on Wednesday but Brighton denied the claim.
The club tweeted: “Contrary to inaccurate reports from numerous media outlets this evening, no agreement has been reached with any club to sell Marc Cucurella.”
Cucurella had handed in a transfer request to force through a move to the City, but they were unwilling to pay more than £30m.

Meanwhile, Spurs are said to be interested in Ajax star Mohammed Kudus – a player Erik ten Hag once described as having “incredible potential”.
Tottenham have reportedly scouted the player for the last six months and Antonio Conte could look to add one more player to his team this summer – with Barcelona’s Memphis Depay also of interest.
