Football Insider have claimed that Eric Dier is now ‘seriously interested’ in quitting Tottenham Hotspur in January after Bayern Munich entered the race for his signature.

It has been widely reported over the last month that Dier wishes to run his contract down and leave Spurs as a free agent next summer so that he has more options to choose from regarding his next destination (Alasdair Gold – Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham).

However, The Daily Mirror claimed last week that Daniel Levy would look to command a fee for the 29-year-old in January rather than letting him run his contract down.

The outlet added that the likes of Sporting Lisbon and AS Roma have shown an interest in making a move for the experienced defender mid-season.

It then emerged a few days ago that Bayern are also exploring a move for Dier in January, with the Tottenham man’s versatility said to appeal to Thomas Tuchel (Football Insider).

Dier is now tempted to join Kane at Bayern Munich

If Football Insider’s latest update is to be believed, the Spurs star has now changed his stance after hearing of Bayern’s interest.

It is asserted that Dier would be interested in swapping the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the Allianz Arena in January and reuniting with Harry Kane at Bavaria.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am quite sceptical about this report as Dier will know that he will likely be the fourth-choice centre-back at Bayern. His chances of game time at the Bundesliga club are even lower than it at Spurs.

The 29-year-old would probably want to join a club where he would be an automatic starter, given that he is theoretically in the peak years of his career.
