A superstar defender at Tottenham Hotspur is believed to be in the sights of Manchester City.

Pedro Porro has been one of Tottenham Hotspur's most consistent players this season under Ange Postecoglou. Manchester City have taken notice of this - they could look to strike a deal for the Spanish international's signature.

According to a report from Football Insider, City are looking to bring their former player back to the Etihad Stadium, after he failed to make a single appearance for the Sky Blues during his first stint with the club. As things stand, it remains unknown as to whether they will mount a transfer offensive in January of if they will wait until the summer.

Porro only signed for Spurs on a permanent basis last summer, having initially joined the club on a loan deal with an obligation to buy back in January of 2023. It would be strange for him to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium so early into his Lilywhites tenure - but City could make an offer than they cannot financially refuse.

Who else is interested in a move for Tottenham's Pedro Porro?

City aren't the only club who are interested in bringing Porro on board. Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the 24-year-old, as have Barcelona - additionally, newly-minted moneybags clubs Girona could also seek out a deal for the player. He has played for Blanquivermells in the past, between the years of 2017 and 2019.

Porro is valued at around £100 million by Tottenham, after they paid around £34 million to complete a deal for him last summer. Selling him would certainly be a good way to bolster their transfer budget - however, he remains one of their most important players. This season, Porro has made 21 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, scoring a single goal and notching up a total of eight assists along the way.
