Eric Dier has his sights set on a transfer to Manchester United this summer from Tottenham, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Tottenham midfielder is very keen on a move to Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to further bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The same story claims that Dier has told friends that he is excited about the prospect of moving to Manchester United to work under Mourinho next term.

The article also states that Manchester United are now determined to land Dier after missing out on the chance to sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea this summer.

The story says that Tottenham value Dier at around £60m, but that is £20m more than Manchester United think the 23-year-old England midfielder is worth.

The Red Devils, however, are still said to be confident of sealing a deal and it is suggested that Spurs would be willing to accept a transfer fee of around £50m for the midfielder.

Manchester United are preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after their Europa League title triumph last term.
