Regarding Tottenham Hotspur’s recruitment in the past, there has been a recurring pattern: the Lilywhites have frequently searched Italy for possible diamonds who may succeed in English football.
In the past, the north London team, led by sporting director Fabio Paratici and under Antonio Conte, made headlines by signing players like Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie from Atalanta and Udinese, respectively. The latter player only joined the team this summer.
Even under Ange Postecoglou, the team went back to Serie A in the most recent transfer window to sign goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli. According to Sky Sports analyst Jamie Carragher, the relatively unknown player has turned out to be a great “revelation” in the Premier League thus far.
