Tottenham fans are split on the latest news regarding Wilmar Barrios, as multiple reports have claimed the Boca Juniors midfielder is close to a switch to North London.
Argentine outlet El Sol expect Barrios to join Tottenham in the coming weeks, claiming the player has ”everything arranged” to make the move.
The report says the 24 year-old has told Boca Juniors he will not play for the club again, as he looks to finalise a move to the Premier League.
The tough tackling Colombian has been linked with a move to replace the outgoing Mousa Dembele for quite some time, and while there are question marks over his technical ability, he certainly has the muscle to full the Belgian’s boots.
The 13-cap Colombian, valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, was the subject of much discussion after his side’s World Cup defeat to England, as he led their underhand tactics with a head-butt on Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson.
Some fans are absolutely loving his feisty attitude, particularly as he went for a Liverpool player, but plenty of fans have their doubts over a player they see as a red card waiting to happen.
Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Looks like another Aurier to me, moments of brilliance, but essentially a proper liability

Well he might be able to force through the move as he seems pretty ‘head strong’ judging by how easily the penalty king of the independent republic of Scouse collapsed ??
