Destiny Udogie was a sensation last season as he shone in Udinese’s Serie A campaign.

The left wing-back has been linked with Inter Milan, Juventus, and now Lazio in the past few weeks.

Lazio President, Massimo Piscedda is believed to be a huge fan of the player and Maurizio’s Sarri also looks forward to working with the young Italian-born player.

Stefano Antonelli, a member of Udogie’s management team has revealed they’re working on what’s best for the player amid the heavy links.

“Sarai on Udogie? Yes, there is. The story of Udogie is of a top market, in the sense that it is on the lips of the top 5 clubs in Europe. To date I cannot say anything, we still have a long market,” he told Radio Marte.

Lazio are preparing bids for various players to fix their current left-back problems and Udogie looks to be a fitting profile.
