Tottenham Hotspur face the worrying prospect of losing Toby Alderweireld this summer.

There is one signing they could possibly make, which would consign the Belgian to a distant memory.

Step forward Colombian colossus Yerry Mina.

Mina was one half of Colombia' twin towers in defence alongside Tottenham record signing Davinson Sanchez.

The pair were magnificent against England, shackling Harry Kane and Dele Alli from open play, while Mina scored his third goal in four World Cup games.

Mina really caught the eye at Russia 2018 and Premier League sides are paying attention to his possible availability.

Mina signed for Barcelona in January but was not given a run in the side at the Nou Camp and his future is subject of speculation.

His World Cup displays suggest Barcelona would be mad to let him go, but teams are already testing their resolve.

The Liverpool Echo report Everton have made contact over a transfer, while The Mirror report Liverpool are keen.

Tottenham would have a clear advantage if they enter the race, due to Davinson Sanchez.

A back three of Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez and Yerry Mina would be indestructible, and actually an upgrade on having Alderweireld considering his fitness struggles last season and taking into account he is six years younger than the Belgian.

Tottenham cannot let him join a Premier League rival when they have the inside track to his signature, if Barcelona can be talked into cashing in.
