European giant eyeing Tottenham star as shock replacement for World Cup winner

ERIC DIERTottenham Hotspur’s phenomenal season has got the fans in the Transfer Tavern excited, though they have admitted their concern that key players could be lured away by bigger clubs- including this man!

German outlet Bild state Bayern Munich have identified Tottenham’s star midfielder Eric Dier as the perfect replacement to Xabi Alonso.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid ace, now 34, is well into the twilight years of his career and the Bavarian side are very keen to ensure they have an able replacement lined-up, with their eyes cast on 22-year-old Dier.

Dier has been crucial to Tottenham’s rise this season and he’s set to be an important player for England at the European Championships, which will give him a further chance to display his talents on the continent following Spurs’ premature exit from the Europa League.

With Carlo Ancelotti coming into Bayern this summer, a wealth of changes are expected to be made by the Bavarian giants and the lure of such a big club may be too much for Tottenham to compete with.

Is Dier good enough to succeed Alonso? Let us know in the comments below!
