Tottenham’s win was crucial for their hopes of finishing in the top four, with goals from Heung-min Son and Harry Kane securing the victory. Brighton were a constant threat throughout the match, and had two goals denied as well as a penalty claim that was not given.
With reports suggesting that Tottenham are looking to sign a centre-back in the summer, it is possible that Dier could be on his way out of the club.
He is linked him a move to AS Roma, where former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on reuniting with him.
Dier joined Tottenham from Sporting Lisbon in 2014 and has made 356 appearances for the club and has 13 goals and 12 assists.
