Tottenham transfer news: Romano shares update on Porro talks

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in talks over Sporting CP star Pedro Porro.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte has been looking for reinforcements at right wing-back as he looks to save the club’s season.

Tottenham have lost two and drawn one of their last four Premier League matches to leave them five points adrift of the top four.

Right wing-back has been an area Conte has been looking to bolster for a while now.

Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty have done well at times, but there is certainly scope for an upgrade.

Meanwhile, Conte doesn’t seem to view Djed Spence as a regular starter just yet.

The Spurs boss is known for his three-at-the-back system featuring pacy wing-backs.

However, this is something his squad has largely lacked during his time in north London.

With that in mind, Porro seems like a great shout, even though Sporting aren’t making it easy for Tottenham.

The Portuguese giants have previously made it clear they won’t sell him for less than his €45m release clause.

Fabrizio Romano has now shared an update on the state of play involving Spurs, Sporting and Porro.

Taking to Twitter, the transfer insider said Tottenham and Sporting have held talks over the last 24 hours.

These will continue later this week, with Spurs set to insist, and Porro dreams of the Premier League, added Romano.

Tottenham and Porro heading in the right direction – TBR View?

Romano previously said that Tottenham ‘love’ Porro and feel his style of play is ‘perfect’ for Conte.

However, Tottenham aren’t the only club said to be in pursuit of the Spaniard.

The likes of Chelsea and Juventus have also reportedly been looking at Porro in recent days.

Clearly it shows that Porro is a top talent who could do a job for the best clubs in Europe.

At the same time, it remains to be seen whether Spurs are willing to pay £40million plus for him.

That said, Tottenham certainly do need to bolster their ranks at right wing-back.

The wing-backs are crucial to Conte’s system, so it’s important that they are of the appropriate quality.

Tottenham have a lot of potential but have been struggling this term, so they need to put it right.

And things seem to be heading in the right direction regarding Spurs and Porro.
