Former Premier League player turned football pundit, Danny Mills has hinted that Eric Dier could be sold after Tottenham confirmed the arrival of their £65m signing Tanguy Ndombele (Metro).
Mills believes Dier should be fearful for his future at the Lilywhites after the 22-year-old’s arrival at Hotspur Way.
“Tottenham haven’t spent an incredible amount of money on Ndombele to put him on the bench,” Mills told Football Insider.
“When he’s fit, he plays, simple as that…
“Moussa Sissoko will probably be the first choice to partner him in central midfield, with Harry Winks the other main option. He’s had a lot of injuries so can’t be expected to always be available.
“It could be curtains for Eric Dier. You fear for him, you really do. He didn’t have a good season last year, and I can see him leaving if Tottenham need to recoup some money.”
With Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier both likely to be sidelined next season due to the arrival of the 22-year-old it is likely one of them may leave this summer.
Spurs Web Opinion:
Harry Winks, Sissoko and Ndombele will be the main central midfielders going into next season. That probably leaves space in the squad for one other so it is likely either Wanyama or Dier could exit the club this summer.
