Tottenham Hotspur and Sporting CP have finally reached an agreement on the transfer of right-back, Pedro Porro which means Arsenal could well benefit from their Hector Bellerin sell-on clause.
Tottenham have agreed to pay €47.5m and give up 15% of the transfer rights they hold over Marcus Edwards in order to sign Pedro Porro and put an end to this long-running saga, which saw the two clubs struggling to reach an agreement on the payment structure.
However, after a long meeting, the deal is now set to be completed, with Porro expected to travel to London on deadline day.
In the meantime, former Arsenal player, Hector Bellerin, is set to replace Porro at Sporting.
When Bellerin joined Barcelona for free, there was still a contract in which Edu negotiated a 25% sell-on fee. It seemed unlikely, however, that Bellerin would be going anywhere having only signed a one-year deal but, yet again, Barcelona benefit from an Arsenal gift.
With Bellerin expected to be sold for around €3m, Arsenal should net €750,000.
Bellerin, who joined Barcelona last year, recently rejected a return to the Premier League with Everton and is now reportedly ready to move to Portugal.
In conclusion, Tottenham’s move for Porro appears to be finally going ahead, and the club will secure their main transfer target for the window.
Meanwhile, Bellerin is ready to replace Porro at Sporting CP, with his return to Barcelona not going as he had hoped.
