Is Eric Dier obsolete at Tottenham if Yerry Mina and Wilmar Barrios join?

Eric Dier of England runs on during a training session during the England Media Access on June 17, 2018 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Tottenham Hotspur are linked with signing two Colombians.

Tottenham Hotspur already have one Colombian star in their ranks, and the North Londoners could reportedly add two of Davinson Sanchez's international team-mates this summer.

The Sun reckon that Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign Yerry Mina, who starred for his country alongside Sanchez in defence during their World Cup defeat by England this week.

This is on the back of speculation from Argentine publication EL Sol that Colombian midfielder Wilmar Barrios has 'everything arranged' to join Spurs soon.

As far as double transfers go, that would be an incredible one by chairman Daniel Levy, but where would it leave Eric Dier?

If Barrios arrives, then Victor Wanyama will logically drop out of Mauricio Pochettino's first XI, rendering Dier as the Lilywhites' third-choice option for defensive midfield.

Fortunately, the England international, whose penalty led to Colombia exiting the World Cup, can also play in central defence, but Pochettino could have Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Mina and Sanchez for that role if the Barcelona man is signed.

It seems logical that the potential arrivals of Barrios and Mina would result in Dier becoming almost obsolete at Tottenham and therefore you wonder if he must consider his future, should both arrive.

Yerry Mina of FC Barcelona looks on prior to the start the La Liga match between Malaga and Barcelona at Estadio La Rosaleda on March 10, 2018 in Malaga, Spain.
