On the day that Tottenham have been rocked by news of the wage demands from Eric Dier, the club should be looking to act quickly and move the England man on from the club.
The Daily Mail reported earlier today that Dier is looking for a double your money deal with Spurs. That would apparently push him above the £100k-a-week bracket, making him one of the top earners at the club.
Dier has settled in under Jose Mourinho and is firmly in favour under the Portuguese boss. He’s become a regular starter and is back playing in his preferred central defensive position.
However, surely Spurs can’t be looking to spend that much money on Dier? Indeed, there is someone waiting in the wings who is, potentially – and maybe already is – better than Dier anyway.
That man is Norwich City star, Ben Godfrey. The 22-year-old has been outstanding despite the Canaries’ struggles in the top-flight, with the club reportedly valuing him at around £50m, amid interest from Spurs and Manchester United.
