Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with the Sporting CP defender Pedro Porro.
Earlier today Fabzrizio Romano claimed that Spurs are offering €37 million for the Spanish full-back but it seems that the offer has been turned down.
Romano has now tweeted that the last offer of €37m was not enough and Tottenham have scheduled talks for Wednesday when they will look to sweeten the deal for Sporting with add-ons or by including a player in the deal.
The transfer expert further adds that the structure of the payment will also be crucial in any potential transfer.

Porro has excelled with Sporting this season and he has pulled off two goals and ten assists across all competitions. He was impressive against Tottenham in the Champions League as well.
The 23-year-old would be an upgrade on players like Matt Doherty, Djed Spence, and Emerson Royal and he would improve a vital position in Antonio Conte’s system.
It will be interesting to see if Spurs can finally secure an agreement with Sporting tomorrow and get the deal across the line.
As per Graeme Bailey, Sporting are keen to sell the player this month because they fear Manchester City could exercise the buy-back clause in the player’s contract in the summer. Their desperation to sell in January will only benefit Spurs and the Londoners will look to snap him up for a fee less than his release clause.
It will be interesting to see how the situation develops tomorrow.
