Tottenham to hold key talks with Sporting Lisbon over Pedro Porro

Tottenham to hold key talks with Sporting Lisbon over Pedro Porro

Tottenham Hotspur are set to hold key talks today over the possible signing of Pedro Poro from Sporting Lisbon before the end of the transfer window.

Poro’s camp is increasingly confident that the two clubs will agree a return for the Spanish international to the Premier League. Pora only came on as a substitute in Sporting’s Portuguese League Cup semi-final against FC Aruca last night, coming on for 13 minutes.

Potentially crucial talks between Spurs and Sporting will take place on Wednesday. However, no agreement has been reached yet.

Sporting have made no secret of their desire to keep Por, with their manager Ruben Amorim repeatedly insisting that any side looking to sign the former Manchester City player would have to meet his €45m (£39.9m) release clause pounds).

Chelsea and Barcelona have also been suitors for Por, but Tottenham are in a winning position for the 23-year-old.

Manchester City would benefit if the deal were to go through as they have a 30 per cent sell-on clause.

Although he never played for the club, Pora was officially a City player from 2019 until last summer when he made a permanent move to Sporting after a successful loan spell.

Pora spent one season on loan at Real Valladolid before two spells at Sporting.

When Sporting exercised their option to sign Poro at the end of last season, he signed a three-year contract until the summer of 2025.

Poro’s performances for Sporting led to him earning one cap for Spain’s senior team under Luis Enrique in March 2021 in a World Cup qualifier against Georgia.

Pora has been a regular for Amorim Sporting this season, scoring three goals and providing 11 assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.

Fifth-placed Tottenham are looking to do further business before Tuesday’s deadline and are set to complete the loan signing of Arnaut Danjuma later today.
