Indicative of the meteoric rise of Tottenham Hotspur, the form of Eric Dier has been celebrated greatly among the Spurs supporting punters in the Transfer Tavern.
After initially struggling as both a centre-back and a right-back, the 22-year old has emerged as perhaps the best English holding midfielder currently plying his trade in the Premier League.
Crucial for both club and country, the former Sporting Lisbon youngster has been praised for his heroic performances at either level.
So much so in fact, that according to the Daily Mirror, Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti is keeping close tabs on the England star.

During his international duty, Bayern scouts are thought to have been casting watchful eyes over his situation.
