Tottenham held talks with Sporting Lisbon on Monday regarding a deal for Pedro Porro. A deal is still far from resolution, but more talks are planned later this week.

The 23-year-old wing-back has made 94 appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals and providing 19 assists.

However, Porro has a £40million buy-out clause and so far Sporting have been resistant to sell him unless that fee is put forward.

Meanwhile, Southampton have registered an interest in signing Djed Spence during the January window. However, they have their eye on several other players too. 

Southampton are closing in on an £18million permanent deal for Villarreal forward Nicolas Jackson after initially asking for the 21-year-old on loan with an option to buy.

The Saints  are also keen to add a right back to their ranks, with Luton’s James Bree one of the players they are targeting.  

Tottenham’s Spence is another option to have been discussed though he is also wanted by Lyon. 

The French side are expecting offers for their right-back Malo Gusto, 19, who has attracted attention from Chelsea among others.
