As Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit for Sporting fullback Pedro Porro is now a real deal in the Portuguese media, newspaper A Bola features some updates about this chase.

The outlet writes that Spurs have gone ‘from intentions to attack’, which means the London side ‘already made the first contacts’ to sign the player in the January transfer window.

It’s said Tottenham used intermediaries to get in touch with Sporting and get to know how much the Lions want for the player.

According to A Bola, the Lions would let Porro go for a minimum of €30m, but that’s something planned for the end of the season only. It’s claimed that a January sale would be great for their finances, but ‘awful’ for their sporting project.

That means that to sign the player in the middle of the season, Tottenham would need to trigger the player’s release clause, which stands at €45m.

Spurs interest in the player has been around for a while, and it only got bigger when they faced the Lions in the Champions League this season.

Last week, we covered the Portuguese media claiming Tottenham could get a discount for Porro if giving Sporting the percentage they have over a future transfer of Marcus Edwards.
