Pochettino is eager to bolster his midfielder options for next season, and Barrios looks like he could be the one

Despite Spurs already having players such as Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier in their ranks, it easy to see why Pochettino is eager on moving for Barrios to give his more options in defensive midfield.

During the 2017/18 season, Barrios managed to make a total of 23 league appearances for Boca, with the player’s performances helping the club capture their 33rd Argentine Premier League title.

The player would certainly be an absolute steal for £25M, with it looking as if he’s set to play a fairly big role in Colombia’s World Cup campaign in Russia over the summer. Keep your eyes peeled on this one.
