Tottenham in fresh Pedro Porro transfer talks but Sporting Lisbon’s £39.9m asking price could prove issue
TOTTENHAM are set for fresh talks this week with Sporting Lisbon over the signing of defender Pedro Porro.
Spurs have identified Porro, 23, as one of their top targets this window.
They feel the ex-Manchester City ace as the ideal candidate to strengthen at right wing-back.
But Sporting are reluctant to let the Spaniard go in this window.
So far they have insisted Spurs pay up the full £39.9million written into his release clause.
Tottenham will hope to soften that stance when talks resume this week.
Porro is highly rated after an impressive few seasons at Sporting.
He helped the side win the league last season and this term he has chipped in with two goals and ten assists.
Porro has also been capped once by Spain.
Antonio Conte is still looking to make his first signing this January.
The North Londoners are also interested in wantaway Brighton star Leandro Trossard.

However, they face competition from arch-rivals Arsenal.
Spurs are currently fifth and are five points off the Champions League spots.
That is after they lost to the Gunners 2-0 at home on Sunday.
