Report: Spurs interested in 23-year-old; Jenas says he's 'different class'

Tottenham Hotspur are one of a number of clubs across Europe interested in Sporting right-back Pedro Porro, according to a report from Portuguese outlet Jornal de Noticias.

Porro has established himself as one of the most exciting right-sided players in Europe. He scored nine goals in all competitions during his two years on loan with the Portuguese side.

His move from Manchester City became permanent in the summer. But perhaps it may not be too long before he is on the move once again.

But they go on to add that Tottenham are also keen on the youngster. He has a release clause worth around £40 million in his contract. And any side wanting to sign him will reportedly have to go close to that figure.

Spurs fans will be desperately hoping that there is something in the reports linking them with Porro. The right wing-back position has been a big issue for Antonio Conte’s side this season.

Emerson Royal has had an absolutely torrid time of late. And it does appear that Conte is not doing the Brazilian any favours by continually picking him.

It would seem that he is not convinced by Matt Doherty or Djed Spence. And with that, he has stuck by Emerson.

However, there have been reports from 90min that Tottenham are ready to sell Emerson in January. And you would imagine that they would jump at the chance to make some of their money back on the former Barcelona player.

The wing-backs are so important to Conte’s system. And Porro would be a fantastic signing. Jermaine Jenas labelled him ‘different class‘ when Spurs faced Sporting in the Champions League this season.

Perhaps that display paved the way for Tottenham to look at a potential transfer.
