Tottenham defender Eric Dier is being strongly linked with a move to Bayern Munich, and a transfer could be on the cards.
Football Insider broke the news this morning, claiming that the player has agreed personal terms with Bayern Munich.
It claimed that the 29-year-old is closing in on a sensational move to the Bundesliga giants, and that Harry Kane has fully endorsed the deal at Bayern.
Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg confirmed the news, claiming that the player is in the list of targets for Bayern and that there is a ‘verbal agreement in principle’.
He added that while discussions about a permanent deal are ongoing, no final decision has been reached yet.
The update was shared on X:
“News Eric Dier: Yes, he’s still on the list of FC Bayern and there is a verbal agreement in principle about a potential move now.”
“Talks and ideas about a permanent deal! But understand there is no final decision yet.”
“Dier was already a topic in the summer as excl. revealed. The contact has never been lost.”

Dier’s fall from favour this season under Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham has fuelled speculation about his departure.
Despite earlier reports of him running down his contract, Bayern’s interest could sway his decision, offering not only a reunion with friend Harry Kane but also the chance to compete for silverware immediately.
