Everton threaten Spurs plans for Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios

Everton are being linked with Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios.

Barrios has been linked with several of Europe's top clubs, including Real Madrid, Tottenham and AC Milan.

And Everton have now joined the race to land the Colombia central midfielder.

He has a €20m (£18m) in his Boca Juniors contract, which could be triggered in January by the Toffees.

Marca says the 25-year-old is up for moving to Europe from Argentina and a switch to Goodison Park would allow him to settle in alongside pal Yerry Mina, who joined from Barcelona in the summer.
