Tottenham Hotspur performed exceedingly well in the last term in the Premier League, having clinched the second position on the League table. Their young squad under the managerial leadership of Mauricio Pochettino showed great composure on the pitch and almost gave the defending champions a run for money till the very end of the season.
All the players were equally good in their display of skills and helped their team equally to achieve the result. However, defensive midfielder Eric Dier has been the one to be specially mentioned and has attracted interests from a number of clubs in the top tier, with Manchester United looking very close to getting the player in their squad for the next term.
This has, reportedly, irked emergency in the Tottenham camp, with Pochettino looking forward to bring in someone who can replace his prized midfielder in case the English international makes his way out of the club in the next season. As per sources, the Spurs manager is looking to bring in the Portuguese midfielder William Carvalho as a potential substitute for Dier.
The 25-year-old enforcer, who is considered to be one of the best in his position in the midfield in the last few seasons, has been eyed by a number of clubs all over Europe. The player has been instrumental with his display of skills in the midfield and has been spot on with his tackles and clearances to keep his opponents at bay for his club as well as the National team.
The Portuguese midfielder played a pivotal role in holding the midfield for his national side in the Euro 2016 campaign, which saw Portugal win the competition for the first time in their history. It also helped him to burst onto the international scene and make a statement as a strong contender to be included in one of the top teams in Europe including Tottenham.
The player is known for his physicality in the midfield, as well as his ball controlling capacity, which helps him to keep the possession of the ball for a significant amount of time. Tottenham, who have been quite dependent on Dier for the role of their midfield marshal and a provider of quality passes to initiate an attack as well, can find a good replacement for the Englishman in the form of Carvalho, with the Red Devils having profound interest in the English international to bring him in for the next season.
Tottenham, however, will have to splash something around £27 million in order to bag Carvalho in the summer.
