Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to sign Colombia star Yerry Mina from FC Barcelona but face competition from the Premier League, according to a report.

The Sun is reporting that Spurs are keeping tabs on the Colombia international following his impressive performances at the World Cup in Russia this summer.

The same article states that the La Liga champions would be willing to send Mina on a season-long loan to allow the South American defender to get more experience.

According to the same story, Mina is set to fall down the pecking order ahead of the new La Liga season as FC Barcelona look to sign Clement Lenglet from Sevilla this summer.

A report last week suggested that Liverpool FC could look to sign the Colombia international in the summer transfer window.

Premier League supporters will be no stranger to Mina after the FC Barcelona defender scored an equaliser in added time of the World Cup round of 16.

Mina’s dramatic equaliser rescued a 1-1 draw with England at the end of normal time to force an additional 30 minutes followed by penalties.

Tottenham could lose Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld in a transfer deal to Manchester United this summer.
