January 30, The Athletic reported that Sporting Lisbon is close to signing Barcelona right-back Bellerin on loan
The 27-year-old Bellerin joined Barcelona on a free transfer last summer. The contract between the two parties expires in June this year. It is reported that Barcelona has no intention of renewing the contract with the player.
TA said that Sporting Lisbon will sign Bellerin as Polo’s replacement, who is expected to transfer to Tottenham before the winter window closes.
Portuguese sports originally hoped to sign Brighton right-back Lamptey to replace Polo, but Brighton was unwilling to let the players go on loan, and Portuguese sports could not afford the transfer fee.
In view of this, Portuguese sports turned their attention to Bellerin. This season, Bellerin has very few opportunities in Barcelona and only played 7 times.
