Tottenham Hotspur make formal offer for Chelsea target Pedro Porro


Jan-18 18:33 first published at 18:33 PM

According to Portuguese newspaper Record (via Metro), Sporting CP has rejected Tottenham Hotspur’s offer for Chelsea target Pedro Porro.
Chelsea is also interested in signing the player as they look to add competition to Reece James’ right wing-back position. Spurs allegedly met with Sporting CP representatives and made a 29 million Euro offer plus bonuses.
Despite Spurs’ hopes that performance-related bonuses would bridge the gap between the two parties, this is less than Sporting’s valuation of the player. They are adamant that the player will only leave if his contract’s 39 million Euro release clause is met.

Chelsea’s addition has also come at an inconvenient time for us. The presence of a financially powerful superclub will only boost the Primeira Liga club’s confidence that they can potentially extract as much money as the release clause allows.

What should the Spurs do now?

At right-back, they have no one to compete with James. Cesar Azpilicueta, who has primarily played as a center-back, clearly lacks James’ attacking tenacity, agility, and speed.
Porro could be a fantastic understudy for them, which makes the Blues’ presence in this transfer race concerning. However, the fact that the Lilywhites met with Sporting and allegedly made a formal offer indicates that we are serious about signing the player.
If we are willing to go this far for the former Manchester City winger, we should be able to increase our offer and potentially meet the release clause. It’s not a small sum, but it’s also not a huge sum to pay for the possibility of resolving our right-back issues.
Emerson Royal has not been impressive, and Matt Doherty, at the age of 31, may be on the decline. Meanwhile, Djed Spence can’t seem to get a game started under manager Antonio Conte.

More Tottenham Hotspur Information

Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, believes Arsenal will compete for the Premier League title.
Tottenham Hotspur have scheduled a meeting with Sporting CP for Pedro Porro, according to Ben Jacobs.
Weston McKennie, a Tottenham Hotspur target, has turned down a move to Aston Villa.
Porro, 23, has 10 assists in 23 games this season across all competitions. With the right guidance, he can develop into a very good right-back, and hopefully, the Lilywhites are willing to take a risk with him and put an offer on Sporting’s table that they cannot refuse.
