Tottenham defender Eric Dier has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.
The 29-year-old has struggled for regular game time since the managerial change at Spurs and he is expected to move on during the January transfer window.
The versatile defender has a contract with Tottenham until the end of the season and he is free to secure pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs now.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to sell him for a knockdown price this month to avoid losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.
A report from Italian publication Calciomercato claims that Tottenham ‘will say goodbye’ to the 29-year-old utility man soon and Roma are keen on securing his services.
Roma manager Jose Mourinho knows the player well, having worked with him during that time together at the north London club.
The report states that the Italian club’s chances of signing him on a bargain are ‘rising’.
The 29-year-old is versatile enough to operate as a full-back, central defender, as well as a defensive midfielder. He could prove to be a quality squad player for Roma.
In addition to that, he has played under Mourinho in the past, and he should be able to adjust to the Portuguese manager’s style of play easily and make an immediate impact in Italy.
The England international needs regular game time at this stage of his career and a move to Roma could be an appealing option for him. It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds.
