Bayern Munich keen on Eric Dier

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has been linked with the move away from the club during the January transfer window.

The 29-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Premier League club and he needs to move on in search of regular playing time. A report from Football Insider claims that German club Bayern Munich are keen on securing his services.

It remains to be seen whether Tottenham are prepared to sanction his departure to Bayern Munich in January. The defender has entered the final year of his contract and he will move on as a free agent in the summer. It makes sense for Tottenham to sell him now in January for a nominal price instead of losing him for free.

The opportunity to join one of the biggest clubs in Europe will be a tempting proposition for the England international as well. Bayern Munich have a proven record of competing for major trophies and Dier will fancy his chances of competing for titles with a move to the German club.

The 29-year-old utility man could be a useful option for Bayern Munich. He is versatile enough to operate as a fullback, a central defender as well as a defensive midfielder. The 29-year-old is very much at the peak of his powers right now and he will look to get his career back on track with regular football at Bayern Munich. It will be interesting to see if the Germans are willing to give him regular opportunities.

Bayern Munich are hoping to add more depth and quality to their defence and the Tottenham player will be available on a bargain because of his contract situation. The German club have been keeping tabs on the Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah as well but the 24-year-old is likely to cost a lot more.

Dier has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact in the Bundesliga during the second half of the campaign and it remains to be seen how the situation develops over the next few weeks.
