There continues to be speculation over the futures of Tottenham’s England duo Dele Alli and Eric Dier.

With Alli having previously been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, recently he has been among a number of players touted as a possible target for Barcelona following their big-money sale of Neymar to Paris St-Germain.

Those players also include Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as well as Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool.

And, claiming an exclusive, the Sunday Express say Barca are preparing to table a bid for Alli.

As for Dier, The Sun on Sunday claim German giants Bayern Munich are ready to make a £50m bid to test Tottenham’s determination to keep him.

Dier was recently linked with Manchester United and it is claimed that Bayern believe they would have a better chance of signing him.

The newspaper also suggests that selling Dier could enable Spurs to secure the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton.

It follows recent reports that Everton want £50m for Barkley, who is in the final year of his contract at Goodison Park and has been tipped to leave the club after rejecting their offer of a new deal.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has repeatedly insisted that neither Alli nor Dier are for sale.
