Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left disappointed by the prospect of Eric Dier leaving the club after The Sun claimed that both he and Victor Wanyama could each be sold this summer.
The report claims that the club are closing in on a £60m deal to sign Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
And that transfer could reportedly spell the end for both the England international and the former Southampton star.
Nevertheless, some supporters have been left confused by the prospect of bringing in one midfield player and then selling two, with a number of fans calling on the side to retain Dier’s services in particular.
Indeed, he has made a total of 209 appearances for the club since his arrival in 2014.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
That would be ridiculous. Squad is threadbare enough as it is. Wanyama is completely washed but I’d keep Dier as backup.

Think we should keep Dier personally, useful squad player & was unlucky with illness and injury last season

I don’t understand the need to sell both midfielders, especially with Dier still so young, surely we need the depth

Can’t lose 3 centre mids and only bring in 1 surely?

Would be against selling both. Ndombele, Winks, and Sissoko are better CMs than DMs. Would like to still have one of them so the others can push the ball up the pitch while Dier or Wanyama protect the back line. Dier can play other positions too.

I know Dier isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I think he’s regressed a bit in recent years, but he’s versatile and a big dressing room character, we have to keep him.
As much as I like big Vic, too many injuries etc. If a decent bid comes in, I think we’ll sell.

Dier has the ability. He just needs a more consistent season. His versatility is an asset which would be costly to loose. And Winks, Sissoko & Ndombele are better as CM’s or B2B midfielders. We need a DM to sweep the floor behind CM in some games.

Keep Dier, sell Wanyama. We still need a squad !
