Porro, a versatile right-back, made an emotional farewell to Sporting Lisbon fans in his final game for the club, a 2-0 loss to Porto in the Taca de Liga final on January 28. He will join a team that is currently sitting in 5th place in the Premier League. The 23-year-old is expected to bring a new dimension to Tottenham’s defence, known for his ability to contribute both defensively and in attack. Porro has made a total of 67 appearances for Sporting Lisbon, becoming a vital component of the club’s success under Ruben Amorim, with the player being described as “sensational.”

The transfer of Porro is expected to be announced shortly. With his arrival, Tottenham hope to strengthen their defence and continue its push for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
What Porro Will Bring to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Porro is impressive at beating a defender and delivering an incisive pass or sending in a dangerous cross for one of his attacking teammates. The Spaniard also offers a vital unpredictability from the wing. He is capable of driving down the line, offering width, but is equally capable of cutting inside and delivering an end product with his left foot. He will bring a new level of ability to a right-wing-back position that Antonio Conte has struggled to fill.
