Tottenham want to complete signing of defender to avoid competition from Real Madrid in the summer


Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing Sporting CP right-back Pedro Porro this month to avoid competition from Real Madrid in the summer. Spurs have been locked in negotiations over a move for the Spaniard.

Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade has added to the speculation over Tottenham trying to push forward a move for Porro this month. He claims Spurs are wary of Real Madrid pursuing the Sporting right-back in the summer.

Reports claim that a meeting was held on Wednesday (January 25) between the north London club and Sporting to decide on a potential deal for Porro. The Primeira Liga club are unwilling to sell the defender below his €45 million release clause.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form, scoring three goals and providing 11 assists in 25 games across competitions. He played against Tottenham on two occasions in the UEFA Champions League this season and was not on the losing side in either game.

Porro has previously been a Manchester City player, although he never made a senior appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side. He joined Sporting from City for €8.5 million last summer. He had previously spent two seasons on loan at Estádio José Alvalade.

Real Madrid’s future interest in Porro may worry the Lilywhites, and they seem eager to seal a deal for the right-back now. If they don’t, the queue for his signature might just become more extensive.
