Inter Milan eye Nigerian as replacement for Tottenham-bound winger Ivan Perisic

According to Corriere dello Sport via Tuttomercatoweb, Italian Serie A side Inter Milan are targeting a move for Italian-born Nigerian wing-back Destiny Udogie as a potential replacement for 2018 Croatia World Cup star Ivan Perisic.

 

Tottenham Hotspur are on the brink of announcing the capture of the versatile winger on a free transfer.

 

Fabrizio Romano has informed that Perisic is expected to fly to England today for a routine medical ahead of his reunion with Antonio Conte, under whom he won a Serie A title with Inter Milan in 2021.

 

 

Inter Milan will be on the lookout for a new wing-back with the imminent departure of Perisic, who has been on the books of the Nerazzurri for seven years after joining from VfL Wolfsburg.

 

Three players, including Udogie, have been identified by Inter's recruitment team as a potential replacement for Perisic, the others being Andrea Cambiaso (Genoa) and Raoul Bellanova (Cagliari).

 

Udogie's impressive displays last season have caught the eye of Inter Milan and at just nineteen years old he has made 41 appearances in the Italian top-flight.

 

Inter Milan will have to see off competition from Juventus to sign the 15 million euro-rated Udogie.
