Report: Tottenham consider move for Eric Dier replacement

Date published: Friday 23rd June 2017 10:24

Tottenham have reportedly targeted a move for Fiorentina midfielder Matias Vecino as a potential replacement for Eric Dier.

Dier has been on a long-term target for Manchester United and there is a growing belief that he could leave Spurs for pastures new this summer.

As a result Tottenham are now looking at alternative central midfield options and are said to be weighing up a swoop for Uruguayan star Vecino, according to a report on talkSPORT.

The 25-year-old enjoyed an outstanding campaign with Fiorentina last season, making 40 appearances for the Serie A outfit in all competitions.

Vecino, however, is likely to command a hefty transfer fee given that his Fiorentina contract runs out in June 2021.
