The urgency from Barcelona to sign a right back can be seen everywhere as the club is being linked to new names with each passing day. The newest name being linked is Sporting CP’s sensational fullback, Pedro Porro.

Recent reports from Relevo suggest that the club currently values Pedro Porro and Arnau Martinez the most as of now as the possible options to bolster the Right Back spot.

The Catalan side also could have possibly tried for Liverpool’s superstar Trent Alexander-Arnold or Chelsea’s emerging Reece James, but the problem was with the FFP regulations and the perfect recruitments within the financial limits would be the two mentioned previously.

The Sporting CP’s fullback is valued around €25 million and La Blaugrana value his young age and his experience. The Catalan giants could also use the €10 million purchase clause of their loanee Francisco Trincao who’s currently at the same Portuguese club to reduce Porro’s signing fees.

Pedro Porro currently plays as a Wingback at his club, so he might need to be Defensively more responsible at Barcelona where the play revolves around fullbacks.

In the Portuguese league, he has achieved 4 assists in 716 minutes with an accumulated xG of 1.26 with a 27% shot-on-target rate. He has also won 71% of his tackles and being only 23 years old, has a lot of time to get even better.

The other option is Arnau Martinez, who has been linked with a return to the club for a while now. He can also play as a centre-back and has played in La Masia, making him more experienced when it comes to knowing “The Barcelona Way”.
