Tottenham aim to close a deal with Sporting Lisbon for Pedro Porro TODAY, despite a £32.5m offer being turned down, with Spurs open to offering players in exchange as part of the transfer.
- Antonio Conte’s Tottenham have had defensive problems in their last few games.
- The right side of Sporting Lisbon, Pedro Porro, has been his main objective this window
- Spurs have been turned down a £32.5m offer but talks will resume to finalize the deal
Tottenham wants to close an agreement today with Sporting Lisbon for right-back Pedro Porro.
His £32.5m offer has so far been rejected, but talks will resume today on a revised payout structure plus bonuses and a possible player in return.
Tottenham have made the Sporting defender their main target for this window as Antonio Conte’s side remain vulnerable at the back.

The Portuguese club have previously been flagging their £40m release clause, but it is understood their stance may be softened if Tottenham can reach £30m plus bonus.
The 23-year-old, who has also served as a full-back for Sporting, has made 96 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals and providing 20 assists.
Since Kieran Trippier left Spurs in 2019, the North Londoners have been unable to find someone of the same quality, with Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty undelivered at the moment, while youngster Djed Spence hardly makes an appearance.
But Porro, previously on Manchester City’s books, may well be the answer for Antonio Conte.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the pitch, Tottenham striker Harry Kane expects to hold contract talks in the coming months but remains focused on trying to win his first trophy for the club.
