Former Watford Scout Leonardo Gabbanini Has Been Named Chief Scout At Tottenham
As part of Fabio Paratici's strategy to improve Spurs' recruiting, it follows a number of high-profile staffing appointments at the organization.
Tottenham has hired Jermain Defoe and Yaya Toure as members of their academy staff in addition to experienced personnel from other European clubs.
Gabbanini has reportedly been working with Spurs since July and is considering "restructuring their scouting network," according to reports in the Evening Standard.
They stated that the 19-year-old defender Udinese Destiny Udogie is nearing an agreement to join North London for £15 million.
Although the short-term plan is to loan him back to Udinese for the remainder of the season, the teenager would likely serve as insurance on the left side for Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic.
With a tense 2-2 draw against London rivals Chelsea on Sunday, Spurs maintained their strong start to the Premier League season.
Both managers were sent off after an altercation on the touchline, as Tottenham snatched a point thanks to a 96th minute goal from Harry Kane.
They play their next game at home against Wolves in the early kick-off on Saturday.
