They feel the ex-Manchester City ace as the ideal candidate to strengthen at right wing-back.

But Sporting are reluctant to let the Spaniard go in this window.

So far they have insisted Spurs pay up the full £39.9million written into his release clause.

Tottenham will hope to soften that stance when talks resume this week.

Porro is highly rated after an impressive few seasons at Sporting.

He helped the side win the league last season and this term he has chipped in with two goals and ten assists.

Porro has also been capped once by Spain.
