Tottenham Hotspur is expected to dramatically succeed in signing Pedro Poro.
European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted on the 31st (Korean time), “Tottenham will succeed in signing the prisoner on the last day of the transfer window. We are resolving the issue with Sporting Lisbon. And we are waiting for the paperwork to complete the recruitment.”
Tottenham started to reinforce the right fullback this winter. There are Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty, but they have not been able to show satisfactory performances so far. The right-back prisoner of Sporting, who faced off in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) this season, has been in the spotlight. Poro has been evaluated as a player suitable for Tottenham’s three-back with his quick feet and accurate crossing ability. In the Portuguese league this season, he scored 2 goals and 6 assists in 14 games and accumulated quite a number of attack points.
Tottenham came close to signing as they decided to pay 45 million euros (about 60.2 billion won), the buyout of the prisoner. There were also twists and turns. In negotiations over the weekend, an agreement was reached between the two clubs, but the news that the recruitment was canceled a day before was reported. Disagreements arose when Sporting changed details just before signing. However, the two clubs narrowed their differences again and succeeded in finalizing the contract.
Sporting will fill the void left by POW with veteran defender Hector Bellerin. Reporter Gerard Romero, who is well versed in Barcelona news, wrote on Twitter that “Bellerin’s move to Sporting has been confirmed.” Bellerin moved to Barcelona from Arsenal last year, but was pushed out of the starting lineup and found a new team after one season. 토토사이트
The prisoner is Tottenham’s second signing this winter. Previously, Arnaut Danjuma was loaned out and succeeded in reinforcing the attack. The chances of further recruitment are slim. There is only one day left in the transfer window this winter. The English Premier League (EPL) transfer market ends on the morning of February 1, Korean time.
