BAYERN MUNICH are ready to test Tottenham’s desire to keep Eric Dier with a £50million offer. Boss Carlo Ancelotti wants versatile Dier for the German giants and plans a raid before the transfer window shuts. Bayern think the England midfielder, 23, might be available and believe they have more chance of getting him than Manchester United who were rebuffed this summer. Spurs have come under fire for selling without buying in this window — so it would be a major decision for supremo Daniel Levy and coach Mauricio Pochettino. But if there is a hint that Dier fancies Munich — after the collapse of the United switch — then they could set up the sale and look for a replacement.
