Tottenham are ‘preparing to formalise’ an offer for Sporting Club de Portugal defender Pedro Porro in the January transfer window.

That’s according to Correio da Manhã, who say the right-back’s good performances have not gone unnoticed and the Premier League side are ready to move.

According to their information, Tottenham’s proposal ‘will be around’ the player’s termination clause, which is set at €45m.

The interest has been noted in Portugal and is ‘making people talk’, largely because Manchester City still own 30% on a future sale and so would be set to take a sizeable chunk of that sum.

Porro belonged to City for several years, originally joining them in a €12m deal from Girona before spending time on loan at Real Valladolid and Sporting.

It was with the Portuguese side where he really flourished and they decided to turn his two-year loan spell into a permanent switch in the summer, paying €8.5m to do so.

Porro has continued to impress this season, with four assists in 10 games in the Liga Portugal and another assist in the 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League in September.

Indeed, he played 90 minutes in both of the games against Tottenham in the group stages and it seems they were left impressed, so much so they are now ready to make their move and sign him in January.
