Stuart Pearce thinks Ange Postecoglou wants to sell £85k-a-week Tottenham player now

Stuart Pearce believes Ange Postecoglou could look at selling Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier.

Tottenham have enjoyed a positive start to life under Ange Postecoglou as they currently make up the top four, sitting just four points behind league leaders Arsenal.

The Australian manager has totally turned Spurs into an aggressive, front-footed squad.

It’s safe to argue that several players who were important under previous managers have fallen out of favor this season as a result of the significant shift in approach.

Eric Dier is one player who has had difficulty getting minutes this season; in the Premier League, the Englishman has only made three appearances.

This season, Dier has only achieved one start in the league, making two appearances off the bench.There have been rumors that the 29-year-old may be moving next month, and teams like Napoli are reportedly interested.

As of late, Stuart Pearce has expressed his belief that Postecoglou may have already decided on Dier’s fate.


Pearce says Postecoglou could sell Dier

In an interview with Express Sport, Pearce expressed his belief that Dier may soon leave Tottenham.

The legendary English football player stated, “There’s every chance [he could leave] if you’re not a first-team starter at his age.”

Ange may have decided to move on from him as a result of it. He’s been watching him for the past several months, and Van van Ven demonstrated that he can play in that capacity due to his quickness in Tottenham’s high-court press, which leaves them extremely vulnerable at the back.

“The players that do actually play there will have to be confident of playing one-on-one or two-on-two. He’s got to be confident that he’s got two mobile players at the heart of that back line who are going to be able to handle that full-court press and the exposure that throws up.

“Eric Dier might consider this a good time to move on, as he owes Tottenham nothing.”

In the 2-1 victory over Everton on Saturday, Dier made an uncommon league appearance by replacing the injured Cristian Romero off the bench.

Romero was pulled off due to hamstring stiffness, but he should be fit for Thursday’s match against Brighton.

It’s no secret that, after Micky van de Ven’s injury in January, Spurs are looking for a replacement center back.

Given that Dier’s contract is slated to expire in the summer and he now earns £85,000 per week, it will be interesting to see if he stays after the January transfer window.
