Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has been linked with a move away from the Premier League club in recent months.
The 29-year-old has struggled for regular game time this season and he could look to move on during the January transfer window.
The versatile defender’s contract expires in the summer of 2024 and Spurs could look to cash in on him midway through the season. They might not be keen on losing him on a free transfer and it makes sense to sell him for a nominal price in January.
Room are looking to bring in defensive reinforcements and a report from Calciomercato claims that Jose Mourinho knows the Tottenham defender ‘very well’, having coached him at the Premier League club in the past.
The further states that Roma are looking for a player who has the ‘running ability, explosiveness and experience’. Dier has been identified as the ideal target.
It remains to be seen whether Roma can secure an agreement with the English club in the coming months.
The opportunity to showcase his qualities in Italian football could be an attractive option for Dier at this stage of his career. He has already proven himself in English football over the years.
The England international is versatile enough to operate in central defence, as a full-back as well as a defensive midfielder. He could be an asset for Jose Mourinho in the coming seasons.
