Tottenham will put on hold the renewal of Eric Dyer’s contract for now.
The British ‘Evening Standard’ reported on the 16th (Korean time), “As Dyer enters the final season of his contract, he is discussing a new three-year contract renewal.”
Tottenham fans were furious when they heard the news of Dyer’s contract renewal. This is because there has been talk of retaining Dyer, one of the players who caused the club’s defensive problems. The overall balance of the team will also be problematic because the defense prioritizes organizational power rather than individual ability, but Tottenham is being evaluated as having too little capacity for center backs. It is true that, with the exception of Christian Romero, there seems to be no competitive player in the top teams of the Premier League (EPL).
In particular, whenever a defensive problem is pointed out, the player who is mentioned is Dyer. Dyer showed decent defensive power last season, but this season, there are many times when his concentration on defense is weak. Due to the lack of active defense, there were several scenes where the defender could be misunderstood as if he was watching the opponent striker break through. The ability to scatter passes from the back is not bad, but the defender is basically not defending, which exposes the problem.
Many point out that Tottenham needs to change its defense in order to gain an edge in competition with other EPL big clubs and win the championship. Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are players who can compete with any European club. In contrast, there are no world-class players on defense. After the departures of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, 안전놀이터 the reality that proper defensive reinforcement is not being done is being revealed.
Gabriel Agbonlaher, who had a lot of Premier League (EPL) experience while playing for Aston Villa in the past, also said, “I like Dyer. But if Tottenham wants to win the Premier League (EPL) and play in the European Champions League (UCL) every year, Dyer is He is not the defender Tottenham needs.”
Fortunately, a counter-article came out. Britain’s ‘Mirror’ said, “Tottenham will not discuss a new contract with Dyer until the summer. His contract has one year left, but the club’s policy is not to proceed with renewal negotiations until the summer. I want it, and Wolverhampton defender Max Kilman is a strong target.”
