Tottenham transfer news: Pedro Porro could join this week on one condition

Tottenham Hotspur will want to move on as quickly as possible from yesterday’s defeat to Arsenal.

It was another disappointing performance and result for Spurs as their season hangs in the balance.

A report from the Daily Mail suggests Spurs could add a valuable player to their squad in the next few days.

Antonio Conte has made it clear that he would like to add more players to his squad in January.

The uncertainty surrounding his future at the club appears to also be having a negative effect.

A number of players don’t look up to the standard required to be playing for a top four team.

One position that has been an area of contention for some time is right wing-back.

Emerson Royal was first choice at the start of the season, but Matt Doherty has been Conte’s preferred option since the World Cup.

However, the Daily Mail now believe that Tottenham could sign Sporting defender Pedro Porro this week.

The young Portuguese could finally solve the conundrum of who should play in that position.

The report suggests that Spurs will be able to sign Porro in the coming days if they meet his buyout clause.

That stands at £40m, which would make him the second-most expensive defender in Tottenham’s history, behind Cristian Romero.

Fabrizio Romano has recently said that Tottenham are favourites to sign Porro ahead of the likes of Chelsea.

Sporting’s club president made it clear that Porro wouldn’t be allowed to leave until they had played rivals Benfica this weekend.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw, with Porro playing the full 90 minutes.

Tottenham could now sign Porro with that important match out of the way.

There would be a lot of pressure on his shoulders to help turn the club’s fortunes around quickly.

Conte may be hoping his added energy could prevent their typically slow starts to matches.
