Udinese defender, Destiny Udogie has reiterated his desire to play for the Azzurri despite strong links with the Nigerian national team.
The 19-year-old was born in Italy to Nigerian parents and even though he has represented the European country at youth level, he is still eligible to play for the Super Eagles.
Udogie has always expressed his desire to represent Italy at senior level and is determined to keep working hard in order to achieve his objective.
“I will do everything to make myself appreciated by the coach, it is a goal that I particularly care about,” the youngster told Tuttomercatoweb.
Udogie has been linked to the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur after a strong campaign for Udinese.
The former Hellas Verona player admitted he is flattered by the interest from some of the European heavyweights.
“It is very nice to be approached by top-level clubs.
“I live it serenely and thinking about the field. My agents think about the market, they know my thoughts and have my total trust,” he said.
