Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios over the last few weeks, and were expected to complete the deal this month.

However, according to Argentine journalist Luis Fregossi, Chelsea are now the favourites for the midfielder, and could sign him in the January transfer window.

Barrios was in action for Colombia at the 2018 World Cup, and put in an energetic performance against England in the last-16 stage of the tournament.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is believed to have viewed Barrios as a potential replacement for Mousa Dembele, but now Chelsea are seemingly in the driving seat.

The news has come as a big blow to the Tottenham fans who have been frustrated with their club’s lack of movement since the transfer window opened for business.

Barrios could go on to become a star in the Premier League, and the Spurs supporters fear that the 24-year-old will now be making the move to Chelsea.
