Tottenham are considering offers for defender Eric Dier amid interest from Fulham.

The 29-year-old has been omitted from new manager Ange Postecoglou’s squad for their opening two weeks of the Premier League season.

It was the latest snub for the England international after the Australian manager also decided against giving him the captain’s armband – handing it to Son Heung-min after Harry Kane was sold, with Hugo Lloris set to follow him out of the door.

Dier has one year left on his contract and Postecoglou has appeared to make it clear that the defender is not part of his plans. 

Fulham’s interest in Dier meanwhile comes as they expect Tosin Adarabioyo to leave the club before the transfer window closes.

Adarabioyo is a target of Tottenham, as well as Ligue 1 side Monaco.

Monaco saw a bid for Adarabioyo rejected earlier this summer, while they have also lined up a move for Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez.  

Dier has 49 England caps and was part of Gareth Southgate’s squad at the World Cup last year but lost his form in the second part of last season when he struggled with a groin injury.

Cristian Romero and new £43million centre-half Micky van de Ven started in central defence in the 2-2 draw with Brentford and the 2-0 victory against Manchester United. 

Postecoglou said on Friday his priority was to trim his squad before he can pursue further targets in the market, a striker, a midfielder and another central defender.

Asked about his absence after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Brentford, Postecoglou said: ‘Eric is part of this team. We left a few out today. We left some players on the bench today that are very good players. 

‘We need a strong squad, it’s not about 11 players. Eric is in the same boat as all the other boys. 

‘He’s working hard in training and available for selection. My decisions then are what I think will give us the best chance of success for any given game and then we reassess the week after. Nothing really unusual there.’
