CalcioMercato have claimed that AS Roma are eyeing a move for Tottenham centre-back Eric Dier.
Roma could make a move for Eric Dier
CalcioMercato now report that Jose Mourinho is keen on bolstering his options at centre-back during the January transfer window due to Chris Smalling’s injury problems, with the Tottenham man said to be on his radar.
It is suggested that the Portuguese coach could look to reunite with Dier since he is viewed as a player with ‘explosiveness and experience’.
The report states that the centre-back’s €5m (£4.3m) per year salary is not likely to be a major stumbling block for the Giallorossi.
However, the outlet adds that Dier is not the only option that Roma are studying, with the Serie A club also thought to have their eye on RB Salzburg’s Oumar Solet.

I get the feeling that Dier wants to run down his contract and leave the club on a free transfer next summer. That will mean that he has a lot more options to choose from next summer.
However, if an interesting offer arrives in January, one would expect the 29-year-old to seriously consider it, given that he appears unlikely to get any game time under Postecoglou.
