Tottenham Transfer News: Confidence in Pedro Porro deal growing with deal close

Tottenham have been chasing Pedro Porro all month from Sporting Lisbon and it finally looks like they might be close to a breakthrough.

Sporting have stuck to their guns all winter. Multiple reports have cited how the Portuguese side have told Tottenham it’s either pay the 45m Euro release clause, or go away.

However, a report from The Times now claims that a deal could be edging closer. The Times reports how both clubs are now ‘preparing for an agreement to be reached’. It’s suggested Spurs are confident they can cover most of the fee up front and will make up the rest with variables and add-ons.

Porro has emerged as Antonio Conte’s number one target for right wing-back. He has been flitting between Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty this season. However, the Italian doesn’t have full trust in either really.

Tottenham were battered in the second half last night as they lost 4-2 to Manchester City. Once again, their defensive frailties were there for all to see. Conte, then, will be hoping Porro can help arrest some of those woes.

The Times suggests a number of players, including Royal, have also been offered to Sporting to get this deal done.

TBR’s View: Tottenham have got to get this deal for Porro done

Tottenham seem to do this every single window. Porro has been linked for ages and it looks like once more it’s going to go down to the wire.

The player clearly wants to sign so why Tottenham are haggling over a few million in the fee is an odd one. It’s easy to see why Spurs fans get frustrated really, when you look at this deal.

Conte needs reinforcements. A wing-back is vital for his system. Porro – described as a ‘very dangerous‘ player – needs signing, and signing quickly to appease those worried Tottenham fans.
