It was reported last week that Mourinho is hoping to raid Spurs for multiple players during the transfer window, with Dier being one of the stars the Portuguese coach wants to take with him to the Stadio Olympico.
Some sources claimed that Spurs have no intention of letting the England international leave and have warned their former head coach off trying to poach players away from the club.
However, Forza Roma now suggest that the North Londoners’ stance on Dier might not be set in stone, with Roma determined to push ahead with a move for the centre-back.
It is claimed that Mourinho ‘will not take no for an answer’ in the pursuit of the 26-year-old and that Tottenham could be bracing for an offer from the Serie A giants.
The report asserts that Spurs vale Dier at around €25m (£21.5m) but it is explained that Roma could have difficulties negotiating with the Premier League club.

Given that Dier is contracted to the club until 2024 and the fact that he has played regularly this season, I cannot see Levy being prepared to sell the 26-year-old for less than £30m.
While Dier, like the rest of our backline, has had a campaign to forget, I also believe that he has been unfairly scapegoated by some Spurs fans on a few occasions this season. I believe the club will want to hang on to the centre-back and see how he fares under a new manager.
