Chelsea to rival Bundesliga giants for Tottenham star – report
Chelsea are being linked with a move for Tottenham defender Eric Dier, according to reports in the British media
Chelsea are set to do battle with Bayern Munich for the signing of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Eric Dier, according to reports in the British media.
The Times are reporting that the versatile England international has emerged as a target for the north London side ahead of the 2017 January transfer window.
Dier has established himself as an important first-team member of Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham squad over the past two seasons following his move to Spurs in 2014.
The same article states that the 22-year-old is unhappy with a perceived lack of first-team football this season under Pochettino as Dier looks to impress new England manager Gareth Southgate.
Dier has scored four times in 51 appearances in all competitions in the 2015-16 Premier League campaign as he helped the north London side finish in third place in the table.
Tottenham tied down England striker Harry Kane to a new long-term contract earlier this season after the 23-year-old scored 25 times in 37 Premier League games last term.
