Tottenham Hotspur signed Destiny Udogie from Italian club Udinese last summer.
The 20-year-old left-back was left on loan at the Italian club so that he can continue his development with regular football. He has now joined up with the North London club and Udogie has been an important first-team member for Ange Postecoglou so far.
Udogie has impressed with his performances in the Premier League and journalist James Maw has heaped praise on the 20-year-old. Maw has revealed while speaking on the View from the Lane podcast that the 20-year-old is looking like a top-class prospect and he could develop into a key player for Spurs.
Maw also compared the player to Gareth Bale and he believes that Udogie will be a £100 million player in the near future. He labelled the 20-year-old as incredibly good and suggested that he is only going to get better with time.
Maw said: “It does seem like [Pedro] Porro and [Destiny] Udogie are the first-choice partnership.
“Udogie, I’m really staggered by how good he’s been. And to me, this is going to sound mad after four games, but he already looks like one of the better players in the Premier League.
“For a player in that position, we’ve seen Gareth Bale and this is a slightly lazy comparison given it’s based entirely on position, but we’ve seen a left-back go on to be one of the best footballers in world football over the course of like a five, six-year period.
“He will be a £100m player like that. Udogie, incredibly good, he’s only going to get better.”
There is no doubt that the former Udinese defender has been a quality option for Tottenham in the left-back department.
He was signed by former manager Antonio Conte and Tottenham fans will certainly be excited with his performances so far.
However, he is still quite young and he will need time to mature as a defender. He is likely to make mistakes in the coming months, but there is no doubt that he is a prodigious talent with a massive future ahead of him.
He will look to establish himself as one of the best full-backs in Europe and Spurs will hope that he can fulfil his world-class potential with them.
