Tottenham loanee is defender with the most goal contributions 2022 Europe's Top 5 LeaguesPublished: September 05, 2022
According to the statisticians at OPTA, Tottenham Hotspur loanee Destiny Udogie is the defender with the most goal contributions in Europe's Top Five Leagues since the start of 2022, an honour he shares with RB Leipzig's Germany international left-back David Raum.
The Italy U21 international of Nigerian descent opened the scoring as Udinese hammered Jose Mourinho's AS Roma 4-0 on matchday five in the Italian Serie A on Sunday.
Five minutes into the contest, Udogie sneaked in and from close range slammed the ball into the roof of the net .
And in doing so, the Tottenham Hotspur-owned left-back took his goal involvement to ten since the start of the calender year.
While Udogie has seven goals and three assists to his name, Raum has registered one goal and nine assists during the period under review.

The Italian-Nigerian joined Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent deal on August 17 but was immediately loaned out to Udinese to continue his development.
He is expected to return to the north London club for the 2023-2024 season.
Udogie made his senior debut for hometown club Hellas Verona in a Serie A clash against AC Milan in November 2020 and has since played a total of 48 games as a professional, including 41 for Udinese.
