Journalist Sacha Tavolieri has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur could turn to Leicester City centre-back Wout Faes if Eric Dier departs the club before the transfer deadline.
Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich (Football Daily) as well as Premier League duo, Fulham (talkSPORT) and Burnley (Football Insider) have been credited with an interest in the 29-year-old.
Wout Faes a late option to replace Eric Dier at Spurs
Tavolieri has now also backed up Tottenham’s interest in the Belgian international, indicating the 25-year-old’s profile ‘is appreciated’ by those at Spurs.
The journalist asserted that a late move for the Foxes star is on the cards if Dier leaves Hotspur Way before the transfer deadline.
