As eye-catching as the Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have seen their team be going forward, they are oh so frustrated about the nature of their defence.
Clearly, the club are undergoing a huge rebuild in almost every aspect under Pep Guardiola, though it’s been quite a bumpy ride thus far.
So, imagine how delighted the City supporting locals propping up the bar are to read a story from Ladbrokes News suggesting they are favourites to land a Tottenham player.
The betting company make the Sky Blues 3/1 to land Eric Dier, ahead of the likes of Manchester United (4/1) and Barcelona at the same odds.
One of the most impressive English players in the league, the 22-year-old was a revelation in a holding midfield role last term and was one of few Three Lions stars to perform at Euro 2016.
Still, the ex-Sporting Lisbon man was recently dropped by Mauricio Pochettino as Toby Alderweireld returned to the starting XI.
He’d be a huge loss to the cause at White Hart Lane and the north London locals are sweating over his future.
As you can well imagine, the City fans are dancing in delirious delight.
How big a blow would losing Dier be to Spurs?
