FC Bayern Munich are looking to strengthen their defense with Eric Dier. New details about the potential deal have emerged.
FC Bayern Munich are looking to make Eric Dier their first defensive signing of the winter. The Munich club have already reached an agreement with the 29-year-old center-back, who can also play in midfield. It now remains to reach an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur for the transfer to go through.
According to Sky Sport, Bayern have indeed discussed a permanent transfer with Spurs, but no official offer has yet been made. According to the report, Bayern are expected to pay less than €4 million for the Englishman, who will sign a three-year contract with a one-year option at Säbener Straße.
In Munich, the 49-time international will be reunited with his former teammate Harry Kane (30), who has settled in perfectly at his new club. Dier will bring his experience of 274 Premier League matches to Germany. This experience, combined with Dier’s versatility and relatively low price, make him the desired player by Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel.
Dier is not the only defender that the reigning German champions have in their sights. A new name on the list is Kevin Danso (25) from RC Lens. Bayern will likely have a hard time recruiting Radu Dragusin (21), who is highly rated by the management. According to reports, Tottenham have reached an agreement with Genoa FC for the transfer of the Romanian.
