Tottenham facing delays over deal for Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios

Tottenham may be forced to wait to complete the signing of Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios.

The Mirror says Boca want Colombian midfielder Barrios to postpone a move to Tottenham until the January transfer window after the club stepped up their interest in the 24-year-old.

Reports in south America last night suggested that Spurs had clinched their first signing of the summer - but the Independent now say he may stay in South America for a few months more.

Radio Mitre claimed that an agreement was already in place to bring Wilmar Barrios to England on the say so of Mauricio Pochettino.

In Argentina, Barrios has been likened to Chelsea ace N'Golo Kante.
