TOTTENHAM are growing increasingly confident of completing a £40million deal for Sporting Lisbon defender Pedro Porro in the next few days.
Spurs boss Antonio Conte has been on the look-out for a right wing-back to fit his system since the summer, and Porro, 23, is their main target.1Tottenham hope to wrap up a deal for Porro on WednesdayCredit: Getty
An offer of £32.5m has already been rejected this month, with Portuguese side Sporting remaining stubborn over the player’s £40m release clause.
But SunSport understands that following talks between both clubs over the past two days, an agreement is close to being reached to meet that figure this window.
The £40m deal would include add-ons and bonuses – as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy continues to spend big in order to prove to Conte he can build him a title-challenging squad.
Once on the books at Manchester City, Porro has made almost 100 appearances in all competitions since joining Sporting on loan in 2020.
Should the deal go through, City would benefit with a 30 per cent sell-on clause, having left Manchester permanently in May 2022 for £7.2m.
The Spain international is expected to be thrown straight into the starting XI to kick-start Tottenham’s season, replacing the likes of Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal.
The signing would see the north London club’s spending over the course of this season surpass £200m, having spent £170m on seven players in the summer.
Back on October, Conte said: “We know this situation with the club and the club knows very well we need time and patience, to try to go step by step.Most read in FootballIS JOSIE OKAY?

“I spoke about the transfer market, that we needed more transfer markets to reach a good level. We know this. At the same time, we want to be competitive, to try to do everything.”
Despite winning just two of their last six Premier League outings, Spurs are still competing in the FA Cup and Champions League – as well as remaining three points off the top four.Topics
