Spurs close to signing Pedro Porro after confirming Arnaut Danjuma loan | Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are closing in on their top January target, Pedro Porro, the Sporting right-back, after confirming the signing of Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal.Negotiations over Porro have been back and forth since the start of the month, with Sporting determined to recoup €45m (£39.7m) – the value of his buyout clause. Spurs have tried to structure a deal that would see them pay less immediately, with a sell-on clause relating to Marcus Edwards discussed. Spurs are entitled to 40% of any fee Sporting receive for selling Edwards, one of their former players. They have offered to reduce that figure in exchange for paying less for Porro, a Spain international. The Premier League club failed with an offer for Porro on Wednesday morning but further talks are scheduled for later in the day amid growing optimism that a deal can be finalised. Sporting do not want any players in part-exchange.Antonio Conte has been keen to upgrade his options on the right flank and sees Porro as the solution. The 23-year-old has excelled since joining Sporting from Manchester City, initially on loan in 2020 before the Portuguese club made the deal permanent for €8.5m last summer.The signing of Danjuma, which includes an option to buy at the end of the season, came after Spurs hijacked Everton’s deal for the Netherlands international. The 25-year-old, who plays mainly as a centre-forward but can also be used off the left or as a second striker, had two seasons at Bournemouth from 2019.Sign up to Football DailyKick off your evenings with the Guardian’s take on the world of footballPrivacy Notice: Newsletters may contain info about charities, online ads, and content funded by outside parties.
