Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign two Tottenham Hotspur players. According to The Daily Star, Eric Dier and Lucas Moura are both on Man United’s radar ahead of the January transfer window.
Lucas only just signed a new long-term contract in the summer. But Man United are keeping their tabs on whether he is settled or not. Having been on the bench for the last few league games, the Brazilian might start to get frustrated.
But Tottenham are likely to want to keep Lucas. The 27-year-old, who joined in January 2018 from Paris Saint-Germain, is a valuable member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. This was evident in last year’s Champions League when he scored a hat-trick in the semi-final to inspire a comeback victory.
Meanwhile, Man United have been long-term admirers of Dier. The 25-year-old has played over 200 games since joining from Sporting Lisbon. But he has not played a single minute of football this season.
Solskjaer is eyeing Dier to cover in holding midfield, central defence and at right-back. Here are some Spurs tweets discussing Man United’s interest in Dier and Moura.
they’re going nowhere

Dier needs to start playing. Moura’s roll has been perfect this season.
