Spurs ‘reach agreement’ over signing of £13.9m star after holding talks

Reports coming from South America as of today are stating that Tottenham have ‘reached an agreement’ over the signing of Wilmar Barrios.

Mauricio Pochettino is preparing his squad for another season of Champions League football after a third place finish in the Premier League in the campaign which ended last month.

The current speculation and drama surrounding the future of Moussa Dembele means the Spurs boss will have to be in pursuit of a replacement proactively before matters get desperate in the transfer window.

Wilmar Barrios looks to be the man whom Pochettino is intent on signing and based on a report by Antenna 2, Tottenham have reached an agreement with Boca Juniors over the transfer of the midfielder.

The 24-year-old has an affordable £13.9m clause in his contract even though the Argentine side are reportedly keen on increasing the transfer fee for Barrios.

Nonetheless, Spurs are claimed to have agreed a move for Barrios to move to the Premier League.
