Journalist Fabrizio Romano was recently speaking on the Here We Go podcast and he talked about Dier and the Englishman’s links with a move to Jose Mourinho’s Roma.
Romano stated on the podcast that there is ‘nothing’ between Tottenham and Roma and he even branded the claim as ‘fake news’. The journalist said the same about David de Gea’s links with a move to the Stadio Olimpico-based club (via HITC).
Should Spurs sell Dier in the summer?
The news about Dier was relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Web. Many Tottenham fans made their views clear about the defender.
What did Spurs fans make of the news about Dier?
“Such a shame.”
“Ruined my day.”
“Just release him then.”
“PLEASE TAKE HIM.”
Dier has been a regular part of the Spurs side this season, having made 26 Premier League appearances and even in Mourinho’s tenure at the club, the Englishman played multiple times in the league for the Lilywhites (as per Transfermarkt).
In the league, Dier has amassed a rating of only 6.66 for Spurs. That is the lowest-ever rating he has picked up in a single Premier League campaign, which shows that he’s not been impressive (as per WhoScored).
But Dier offers the capability of playing in different roles across the pitch and he adds depth to the squad too. So perhaps, it would make sense for Spurs to keep him.
