Wilmar Barrios failed to conquer the English national side at the World Cup after a tense penalty shoot-out. However, the Colombian might just end up playing in England if Tottenham can seal a deal for the 24-year-old.
The Boca Juniors man has been linked with a move to North London and it would not be out of Spurs’ grasp to sign another South American after the likes of Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura, Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez joined the club.
Barrios does have a nasty edge to his game as he ended up headbutting Jordan Henderson in their loss to England but was lucky to only receive a yellow card.
The 24-year-old could be one of those unheralded signings that turn out to be amazing and the Tottenham fans certainly were out in full force on Twitter to share their opinion about Barrios.

Struggling to get excited about anyone we’ve been linked with.

After seeing him play for Colombia, I can’t say I’m very impressed tbh

He’s only signing so he can have another go at Henderson, 😂

After seeing Barrios yesterday, I hope the rumors aren’t true we’re interested. Too much of a hot head. #COYS

I hope we sign Barrios he’s a absolute prick and rival fans will hate him 😂😂 #welcomebarrios

Harry Kane swapped shirts with Tottenham Hotspur summer target Wilmar Barrios at the end of tonight’s match.
Full credit to the midfielder, already seems to understand the hate for Liverpool players.
