Udinese chief Pierpaolo Marino has confirmed talks are underway with Tottenham over Destiny Udogie.
Spurs aim to sign the Italy U21 fullback and loan him back to the Zebrette for the new season.
Marino said, “There is a negotiations underway and talking about it when there are still no formalities is very complicated.
“It’s nice that there is an important offer for Udogie, but Udinese only sells their players for the right amount and tends to keep them for two years.
“We will try not to deny these parameters.”
