The 25-year-old, whose contract runs out in 2021, could become the second player after Toby Alderweireld to commit his future to the North Londoners this month.

A regular in the squad under Mourinho, Dier had missed a large chunk of the 2018-19 season due to multiple injuries. He found his chances extremely limited until the arrival of Mourinho.

Since moving to Spurs in 2014, Dier has been a mainstay in the Tottenham midfield and has made 219 appearances for the club. His performances have also seen him earn 40 caps for England.

Versatility – a boon

Apart from being a senior member of the squad, Dier also has the ability to play in the centre of defence, which offers Mourinho greater flexibility.

The 25-year-old is underutilized as a freekick taker and should be encouraged to take set-pieces more often, thus adding another dimension to the attack.
