| The truth about those Tottenham transfer links with Colombia midfielder Wilmar Barrios
| sbobet asian There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios and a potential move to Tottenham Hotspur in recent days.Colombian media reports have gone as far as to say that Tottenham have an agreement in place to sign the 24-year-old and that manager Mauricio Pochettino personally requested the signing of the Colombian international.Spurs fans got even more excited when they realised that Barrios had followed the club on social media in recent months.
However, as well as following Tottenham, where his international team-mate Davinson Sanchez plays, it should be pointed out that Barrios also follows the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich from his social media accounts.The defensive midfielder is currently in negotiations over a new contract with Argentinean side Boca, with reports that he has a £14.5m release cause in his current deal which the club want to increase, along with his wages.The player refused to answer questions about his future this week as he prepares with his Colombia team-mates ahead of Tuesday's World Cup match against Japan in Russia.
sbobet asian Barrios is an important player for Boca, who begin the knockout stages of the Copa Libertadores in August and do not want to lose him.However, Tottenham are unlikely to be among those clubs trying to sign the defensive midfielder as football.london understands that Barrios is not a player the club are looking to sign this summer.Spurs are certainly looking for new midfield recruits during this transfer window though, with Mousa Dembele's future still unclear at the north London club.Despite reports from France, the club have not accepted a bid from an unnamed Chinese club to sell the 30-year-old.
