Sporting CP wing-back Pedro Porro and head coach Ruben Amorim have both been asked about Tottenham’s ongoing pursuit to sign the former before the end of the January transfer window.
90min first reported of Spurs’ interest in Porro in December, and while Sporting have repeatedly insisted that a transfer will only be sanctioned if his €45m release clause is met up front, some behind the scenes have been tempted by an offer in instalments.
Porro continued his fine season with a goal and assist in their late 2-1 win at home to Vizela on Friday night, and speaking to the press post-match, he remained tight-lipped about his future.

“I’m not talking about the possibilities on the market – about staying nor about leaving”, Porro said to SportTV.
“I’m focused on Sporting and I’m happy here.”
Amorim, who has often had to front up to the media about Spurs’ efforts to take one of his star men in the last few weeks, was once more asked about Sporting’s attempts to keep Porro.
“I can’t guarantee anything. It doesn’t seem to me that he will leave. To leave at this moment, he has to leave due to the clause. That is the knowledge I have,” he said.
