Various reports claim Manchester United have made Tottenham’s Eric Dier their prime midfield target this summer.

Having secured the services of striker Romelu Lukaku after roping in Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Jose Mourinho is keen to bolster his midfield with a bid for the England star.

However, the 23-year-old may well cost United £50 million with Spurs under no pressure to sell although it is said that the player is keen to make the move happen.

A reunion with Nemanja Matic for Mourinho was on the cards up until United hijacked Chelsea’s deal for Lukaku, souring relations between the clubs.

Meanwhile, Fabinho remains on United’s shopping list but Dier is seen as the chief candidate to replace Michael Carrick in the long term.

The Englishman has excelled as the midfield anchor for the north London outfit over the last couple of seasons and is well-versed at playing at centre-back or even right-back.

The video below takes a closer look at the United target.
