Barcelona have made contact with Sporting CP over a potential future transfer for Pedro Porro, according to Portuguese news outlet Record.

The report claims that the Catalan giants have enquired over the right wing-back’s asking price and could look to table a bid during the summer window, while there is also interest from fellow La Liga side Atletico Madrid.

Football.London have previously reported that Tottenham Hotspur have two priorities in the January transfer window which consist of a new attacking player and a right wing-back.

Tottenham are said to hold a strong interest in the former Manchester City player with Sporting determined to hold out for the £40m buy-out clause which was inserted into his contract following his move from the Premier League champions last summer (Daily Mail).

Emerson Royal was back in the starting eleven for the FA Cup tie against Portsmouth yesterday and once again highlighted the need for an attack-minded right wing-back after he put in yet another disappointing display.
