Tottenham fans react as Barrios set for Chelsea switch

Tottenham fans are becoming increasingly furious with their club, as reports in Argentina suggest Wilmar Barrios will dump Spurs’ interest to sign for Chelsea.

According to Boca Juniors journalist Luis Fregossi, Barrios will seal a shock swoop to Chelsea in January 2019.

The tough tacking Boca Juniors midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham all summer, but it seems Chelsea have won the race for his signature.

The club president has even commented on the links, telling a local radio station that a Premier League club called him about Barrios on Friday.

The 24 year-old defensive midfielder, valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, was seen as a possible replacement for Mousa Dembele, who is expected to leave North London this summer.

Averaging three tackles and 2.8 interceptions per game last season, one dreads to think how to get past a midfield with Barrios alongside N’Golo Kante. With Kante being linked to Barcelona though, the Colombian could be seen as a long term replacement for the Frenchman.

Tottenham fans have been reacting to the shock transfer update, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
