Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as reports claim a deal is as good as done for Colombian international Wilmar Barrios.

Reports in South America claim Tottenham have already agreed terms to sign Barrios in January, for a fee of around €23m (£20m).

The Boca Juniors star was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham after his heroics at the World Cup this summer, but a deal never materialised.

ESPN have since claimed the news of a the club agreeing terms is wide of the mark, though stories from a player’s home region tend to be more reliable than major outlets in these situations.

While there is no concrete evidence in either direction yet, fans have been discussing what the move would mean for the club.

The 25-year-old is an out-and-out defensive midfielder, and fans will remember him butting heads with Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson at the World Cup.

He is averaging a remarkable 4.2 tackles per game in five Primera Division appearances this season, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
