List of deals for Tottenham player in January ‘well within reach’

Eric Dier of Tottenham Hotspur is wanted by AS Roma manager José Mourinho in January, according to a report from Calciomercato on Wednesday.

Chris Smalling hurt himself earlier this month, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be fit to play again. In this circumstance, Dier would be a good fit for the Serie A team looking for a new center-back.

The Tottenham player may be the Giallorossi’s best option, claims TV Play.

That’s because the England international’s profile, experience and ‘explosiveness’ are all the qualities that Mourinho’s side ‘desperately need’.

The 30-year-old hasn’t made an appearance yet for Ange Postecoglou’s side this season and has a deal expiring in 2024.

It’s said the time left on his contract is the ‘most important element’ that will favour Roma general manager Tiago Pinto in a possible negotiation with Spurs for a deal in January.

Dier currently earns €5m per year and the report states this is ‘within the reach’ of the Italian club, taking the Growth Decree tax advantages into account.

As it stands, Roma haven’t yet made contact with Tottenham for the defender but have the idea to sign him in the winter market.

Mourinho knows Dier well from his time at Spurs and there seems to be a possibility for the pair to reunite at Roma.
