Spurs to step up pursuit of Dier

There are suggestions starting to emerge that Barcelona have made a bid for Jan Vertonghen but I have to say I haven't been able to get any confirmation of that from Spain, merely their interest as one of the options.

Spurs step up pursuit of Eric Dier

A player this site has kept an aye on as a potential purchase is Eric Dier and several articles have been penned about him or the difference in training in Portugal to England, or Southern Europe to Northern Europe. We are seeking a young centre-back.

John Stones (Everton) is 20, Jamaal Lascelles (Notts Forest) is 20, Eric Dier (Sporting) is 20, Matthias Ginter (SC Freiburg) is 20, Stefan Savić (Fiorentina) is 23.

In addition we have been looking for a slightly more experienced centre-back Dejan Lovren (Southampton) is 25 and Héctor Moreno (Espanyol) is 26 for instance.

Stones will be very difficult to prise away from Everton and Notts Forest don't want to let Lascelles go without an inflated fee. Eric Dier is English despite growing up in Portugal and learning his football at Sporting, he plays for England Under 21's and has consistently refused to sign a new contract with a fat release clause in it.

His ambition is to play Premier League football and Tottenham may be about to step up their chase for him with the other targets looking unlikely.

If Barcelona have bid for Vertonghen and if they are going to go after him now then we'll definitely be needing an experienced centre-back. Younès Kaboul hasn't shown recovery of form since his injury, Chiriches hasn't shown himself to be good enough yet and Michael Dawson is only waiting on a pay-off agreement to leave. If Vertonghen goes then the cupboard is pretty bare.

It needs stocking before winter.
