Chelsea are speaking to the agent of Sporting CP right-back Pedro Porro over a potential January move.
Chelsea have had some serious issues this season as Reece James has really struggled to stay fit – with his latest injury set to keep him out for a good few weeks.
That means that the Blues will need to delve into that transfer kitty to try and add a new full-back to the squad – and now they are looking to upset rivals Tottenham for the signature of Porro – if you believe Journalist Simon Phillips
“On Pedro Porro, again they’re speaking to his agent to see if a move would be viable this month,” Simon Phillips told GMS.
“Jeremie Frimpong is another one that’s up there. I’ve not had anything on Denzel Dumfries yet, but he’s another one that they’ve looked at.
“Those three are the main ones I’d say and the key right-backs they’re looking at to add some competition for Reece James.”
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has had some real issues at the back himself since taking over at the club – and simply cannot keep a clean sheet on a regular basis.
Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal have been useless at times for the club – meaning that the Italian had asked the board for the signing of Porro – who is making a real name for himself in the game.
