Tottenham: Spurs hatch clever Pedro Porro transfer plan

Tottenham: Spurs hatch clever Pedro Porro transfer plan -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur are hatching a clever plan to sign Sporting Lisbon right-back and Antonio Conte transfer target Pedro Porro.

The Lowdown: Spurs eye Porro move…

Spurs are reportedly very interested in signing the former Man City defender as sporting director Fabio Paratici and the club work on signing wing-back upgrades.

Conte is apparently dissatisfied with current senior options Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal as the likes of Porro and Inter Milan star Denzel Dumfries become linked with moves to north London.

The Latest: Tottenham hatch Porro plan…

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, via Sport Witness, the Lilywhites have apparently hatched a clever plan to sign the 23-year-old.

Spurs allegedly want to use former forward Marcus Edwards as a pawn in negotiations to whittle down Porro’s price tag, with Edwards’ sell-on clause proving crucial.

When Sporting signed the 24-year-old from Spurs, the north Londoners were promised 50% of a future sale, yet Paratici and co are now willing to forego that agreement for a discount on Porro.

This comes as Conte has green-lit a move for the latter man, making Porro a transfer ‘priority’.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Sacrificing a marginal profit line for signing one of Portugal’s most in-form full-backs could be worth it.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

Called ‘sensational’ by members of the media, Porro has four assists to his name already for Sporting and ranks in their top two for shots at goal and key passes made per 90 (WhoScored).

A highly attack-minded defender, he could be perfect if Conte wishes to seriously bolster his attacking options.
