Tottenham is keen to finalise a deal with Sporting Lisbon for right-back Pedro Porro.
Although their initial offer of £32.5 million has been turned down, discussions will continue toda over a new payment schedule that includes bonuses and a potential player in exchange.
The Sporting defender has become Tottenham’s top target for this window as Antonio Conte’s team continues to struggle defensively.
The Portuguese club has previously cited his £40 million buy-out clause, but it is believed that if Tottenham can reach an agreement of £30m plus bonuses with them, they may relax their stance.
The 23-year-old has put together an outstanding season in Portugal, recording 25 games, 11 assists, and three goals.
Porro, a right wing-back who has been called “dangerous,” would provide Spurs another attacking option down the right side based solely on his stats.
Conte has already faced the player twice this season in the Champions League, so he will be fully prepared for him.
Following the matches, Jermaine Jenas called Porro “different class” and named him as the Sporting player that Tottenham would most like to buy.
