Of course, Tottenham Hotspur doesn’t want to be idle when the competition in the Premier League goes on a busy shopping spree. Spurs have identified a weakness in the back right and want to fix it with Pedro Porro. The transfer of the Sporting player should take place shortly.

23-year-old Pedro Porro is considered one of the most talented right-backs in Europe and now appears to be taking the next step in his career. The Sporting Lisbon defender and midfielder is on the verge of a move to Tottenhem. According to the Times, the clubs should agree and the fee should be around 45 million euros. Although the deal has stalled at one point, Fabrizio Romano says Spurs have never considered the transfer to be in jeopardy. The Premier League club identified the Spaniard as their primary target at the beginning of January. According to the Italian transfer expert, the player should say goodbye to the Sporting fans on Saturday evening and complete the medical check in London in the next 24 hours. Then the contract is signed. Porro is particularly strong on offense and has already had 14 goals in the current season. It is therefore not surprising that the player can be set up both as a right-back and as a right midfielder. With the Spurs he would probably be used as a right rail player and deliver a duel with the not always convincing Emerson Royal.
