According to to comments relayed by journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Sporting Lisbon right-back Pedro Porro has suggested that he is no in rush to join Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Porro has said that he is happy at Sporting for now, and the 23-year-old Spain international does not seem to be keen on pushing for a move to Tottenham in the January transfer window.
The 23-year-old, who can also play as a winger or wing-back, has said that he is not thinking about any possibilities in the market.
The Times have reported that Tottenham are keen on bringing the youngster to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the January transfer window.
90min have also reported Spurs’ interest in Porro, adding that Sporting will only sell him if the Premier League club pay the Spain international’s release clause of €45 million (£40 million) in full.
Sporting Lisbon’s Pedro Porro on Tottenham Hotspur rumours
We think that it is quite smart of Pedro Porro to dismiss the Tottenham Hotspur rumours in public and say that he is happy at Sporting Lisbon.
That shows his maturity and ability to conduct himself the right way in public.
We do think that a move could happen in January, but for that Tottenham need to cough up the cash needed.
Sporting are under no obligation to sell Porro if his release clause is not met.
