“We must sell it in two months.” Tottenham’s 10-year relationship with a diet and preparation for separation, there is a replacement who has already been photographed
There is a reason why Tottenham Hotspur should definitely sell their center back Eric Dier, 29, next January. Money. They could lose Dier without receiving a penny in transfer fees.
The British publication CourtsOffside reported on Sunday that “German club Bayern Munich want to sign Dier next January. “Dyer’s contract expires at the end of the season and Tottenham would be wise to get a fee for him. If they sell him in the January transfer window, Tottenham will get a transfer fee. It’s certainly better than losing him for free at the end of the season.”
The England international has been relegated from the starting lineup to the bench. He was a regular center-back partnership with Cristian Romero until last season, but has made just one start in the league this season. Last summer, Tottenham signed Dutch center back Mickey van der Vaart. Van der Vaart has been a solid defender in his first season at the club, which has naturally led to a decrease in Dyer’s playing time.레모나토토
Dyer has played two league games this season. He’s had to work hard for his minutes after Van der Vaart’s sudden injury departure. He came on as a substitute against ‘rivals’ Chelsea in round 11 and then started against Wolverhampton in round 12. Dyer made two tackles, five interceptions, and won two aerial battles against Wolverhampton. However, Spurs conceded back-to-back goals in second-half stoppage time to lose 1-2. There was plenty of blame to go around for the defense’s momentary lapse in concentration. Dier also hung his head.
When Vanderven returns from injury, Dyer will be relegated to the bench again. “Dyer has been pushed to the back of the line at Spurs and he is no longer a key starter for the team,” said CourtOffside. He needs to find playing time and move on. A move to Germany (Munich) could be ideal for his career.”
Dier’s contract runs until June 2024. In the January transfer window, which opens in two months’ time, the club will have to sell him in order to collect a transfer fee. “Dier is not in Tottenham manager Anze Postecoglou’s plans,” the outlet added. He has only played when Vanderven was injured and Romero was suspended. Spurs are willing to part ways with Dier. Dier’s contract expires at the end of this season. Next January will be the last chance for Tottenham to sell him.”
Postecoglou has made a number of changes since taking charge last summer, including moving ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min to a frontline role and overhauling the defense. Dier and Ivan Perisic were pushed aside in favor of Vanderven and Destiny Udoji. It worked. Last season, Spurs conceded 63 goals in 38 league games, tied for sixth most in the league. It’s a dishonorable record.
This season, on the other hand, Spurs have conceded 15 goals in 12 league games. That’s fifth fewest in the league. While recent injuries to the defense have contributed to the increase in conceded goals, the team has been more consistent in the past. The defense has been a big part of the reason why Postecoglou’s attacking football has been able to shine.
Tottenham’s transformation continues. Postecoglou continues to look for a new center back to improve his squad. He will move again next January. That means finding a replacement for Dier. He already has a candidate in mind.
Earlier, British football publication 90MIN reported that “Tottenham are looking for a new center back. They are chasing 23-year-old Aberdeen (Scotland) defender Slobodan Ruvezic.”
Serbia’s Ruvezic is a very tall player at 194 centimeters. He uses his size to fight for aerial balls. In 11 league games this season, he won an average of 6.5 balls in play per game. He has a good ability to win the ball and likes to play with a lot of determination. European statistician Huscore.com also gave him a team-high season rating of 7.09. He is also the second highest rated center back in the entire Scottish league. He is second only to Celtic defender Liam Scales (7.52).
“Tottenham are still interested in Bournemouth (England)’s Lloyd Kelly,” 90MIN adds. The English defender is a versatile player who can play at fullback as well as center back. Born in 1998, he’s still in his mid-20s, but has been a regular defender for Bournemouth since last season. He’s also made eight league appearances this season. At 5’10”, he’s not the tallest player. However, his ability to win and keep the ball is one of his strengths.
According to reports, Tottenham also tried to sign Kelly last summer for a transfer fee of £20 million. However, they were ultimately unsuccessful. In addition to Spurs, Fulham and West Ham are also interested in Kelly, so competition is expected. Italian Serie A clubs Juventus and AC Milan and German side Dortmund are also interested. Bournemouth could also hold out to keep Kelly for this season.
So Tottenham had a plan B in place. They’re keeping tabs on Chelsea defender Trevor Chalobah and Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo. Uruguayan defender Sebastian Caceres (Club America) is another option for Spurs. Caceres has also played for Liverpool in England.
Spurs let Davinson Sanchez (Galatasaray) and Joe Roden (Leeds United) leave last summer. In contrast, they only brought in Van der Vaart. A new signing is a must, not only to replace Dier, but also to fill out the center back numbers.
Dyer is an England international, but he is open to the idea of playing in a foreign league. “Who knows where I’ll be playing in two or three years’ time,” Dyer said last year, “I’m still young and have a lot of time. I’m in no rush, but I think I’ll play abroad again someday. I enjoy experiencing different styles of soccer. I’m looking forward to playing a different style of soccer like I loved as a kid,” he told local media.
England defender Dyer has an unusual background, coming from the youth ranks of Sporting Lisbon in Portugal. He moved to Portugal as a child at the age of seven due to his parents’ business ventures and pursued his soccer dreams in a new country. Sporting has produced many world-class players, including Portuguese legend Luiz Figo and superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Dyer pulled on a Tottenham shirt in 2014. After a decade of playing for the club, it’s time to say goodbye.
Munich’s pursuit of Dier comes at a time when they have a center-back problem. Despite having quality center backs who could start for any team, they are running out of options. The Bavarians only have three center back options: Kim Min-jae, Dayot Upamecano, and Matthias Derricht. Even then, they have a number of injuries that make tactical decisions difficult.
French defender Upamecano recently returned to action after suffering a hamstring injury. He is still not 100% fit. He started the home game against Heidenheim on the 11th, but he needs to work on his conditioning as he was substituted midway through the game. Dutch defender Derrycht has also been plagued by frequent injuries. A knee injury in the offseason slowed his start to the season, and he was recently ruled out with another injury to the same area. Of Munich’s three center backs, Kim Min-jae is the only one who is still fit, so the pressure is even greater.
Dyer’s arrival would be a huge boost for him. First of all, he will be able to manage his fitness. Currently, Kim can’t rest easy. He has been playing full-time for 14 consecutive official matches. Since September 3 against Mönchengladbach (Germany), he has played more than 90 minutes in every game. Naturally, the pressure on his body and the risk of injury have been building up. Recently, Kim was criticized for making a mistake when he was tired. There were many instances where he made poor passes in the Munich half that led to goals.
Local media were also worried about him. “Kim played 959 minutes out of 990 in the league,” said Germany’s Port1. In all four Champions League matches, he played the full time.” “Munich’s depth is so thin that they only have three center backs. Kim Min-jae is the only one who can play consistently.” “When he joined Munich last summer, he introduced himself as ‘Hello, I’m Kim Min-jae’. But the Korean monster defender may now be thinking, ‘Hello, I’m fine.'”
As it turns out, Dyer is an ideal signing. For starters, Dyer can play all over the defense. “Dyer is versatile enough to play in a number of positions, including center back, flanker, and defensive midfielder. He could be an important player for Munich and manager Thomas Tuchel. He could be an ideal signing for Munich in terms of adding depth to their squad.”
In addition to center backs, the Bavarians are also looking for a defensive midfielder to protect the back four. Dier would solve both center back and defensive midfield problems at once.
As FCB Insider Germany notes, “Munich are preparing for the upcoming winter transfer window. They want to invest mainly in defense in January. “Dier’s strengths are that he can play in center back, on the flanks, and as a defensive midfielder. Dier is also known to be close friends with Munich striker Harry Kane.”
