and are set to battle for the signing of outcast , according to reports.
Dier looks destined to leave north London before deadline day, with the England international seemingly not in Ange Postecoglou’s plans.
The 29-year-old was not named in the matchday squad for the opening three Premier League games of the season and was yet again absent for Spurs’ Carabao Cup clash against Fulham on Tuesday night.
Summer signing Micky van de Ven, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez are firmly ahead of him in the pecking order and as such his time appears to be up.
And he’s now been offered a lifeline from an unusual place, with Sky Germany reporting that the Bundesliga’s two biggest clubs are preparing to make a move for the defender.
Bayern’s interest comes just a few weeks after , and with Dier and Kane close friends, the move could be motivated by the desire to help the latter settle in Munich.
It is well-known that Thomas Tuchel wants to sign a new defensive midfielder, a position that Dier also has much experience in.
Dortmund are also keen on the player who began his career abroad with Sporting Lisbon, and the promise of regular minutes will surely appeal with a place in Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2024 squad at stake.
Dier joined Spurs in 2014 and has made 361 appearances for the club since, helping them reach two League Cup finals and the 2019 Champions League final.
Speaking about his future with the Lilywhites, Postecoglou has suggested it’s not actually over, saying: ‘Eric is part of this team. We left some players on the bench that are very good players. We need a strong squad, it’s not about 11 players.
‘Eric is in the same boat as all the other boys. He’s working hard in training and available for selection.
‘My decisions then are what I think will give us the best chance of success for any given game and then we reassess the week after. Nothing really unusual there.’
Another Spurs player tipped to leave is , though the Dane did start against Fulham on Tuesday.
