Tottenham could make a move for Real Valladolid defender Ivan Fresneda, should the club miss out on signing Pedro Porro.
The Lowdown: Porro speculation
Spurs appear to be keen on strengthening their defence this month, with rumours regarding Porro picking up pace this week. Reports stated that Tottenham have made an opening bid of guaranteed money plus one player for the 23-year-old and are now ‘preparing for an agreement to be reached’.
However, it seems as if the club are making contingency plans on the possibility of missing out on Porro, with Fresneda a potential target.

The Verdict: Good thinking…
Spurs will know how situations in the transfer market can change extremely quickly, so having Fresneda as an alternative target to Porro could be a wise move.
Porro is five years older than Fresneda, so you could argue that he would offer more experience to Antonio Conte’s side and is capable of playing as a right-midfielder.
However, Fresneda appears to be a star of the future and has been described as ‘superb’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, so he too could be a smart signing in the long run, so it will be interesting to see who may arrive in north London over the coming days.
