Sporting Lisbon have ‘contacted’ Brighton over a loan move for Tariq Lamptey, with full-back Pedro Porro closing in on a move to Tottenham.
Porro has a release clause in his contract with the Portuguese side worth £40million which is generating significant interest in his services.
Spurs are hoping to persuade his employers to accept a package worth less than the amount, but talkSPORT understands they are confident the deal will go through.
This will make the Portuguese side short of a full-back and The Athletic report that they have asked the Seagulls for more Lamptey.
Sporting are reportedly looking to bring in Lamptey until the end of the season for the Ghana international, who has made just one Premier League start this term.
Antonio Conte has made signing a right-back his top priority this transfer window.
Porro joined Sporting from Manchester City in 2021 after failing to make a first-team appearance for the Premier League champions.
Since then, the right-back has made 97 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals and picking up 20 assists along the way.
