If Tottenham Hotspur do manage to sign Wilmar Barrios from Boca Juniors, then Mauricio Pochettino could have one of the most intimidating midfield duos in the Premier League.

According to El Sol, everything is set for Barrios to move to Tottenham this summer, as Pochettino’s side close in on the Colombian international.

And if Barrios does arrive at Spurs, then Pochettino’s side would surely have the strongest midfield in England.

With Mousa Dembele seemingly set to depart, Wanyama could have a bigger role to play at Spurs next season.

With Barrios alongside him, Tottenham would have a seriously effective shield in front of their defence.

Wanyama is already one of the most physically strong players in the Premier League, and with the tenacious Barrios alongside him, Tottenham could bully teams in the centre of the pitch.

Barrios is a relentless pest on the pitch, and has no qualms about lunging into strong tackles.

Tottenham are famed for their stylish approach, but Wanyama and Barrios would also offer them steel.

And if Wanyama and Barrios were working in tandem in Pochettino’s team next season, no opposition central midfield would enjoy coming up against Spurs.
