And Pochettino is now said to have added Dier to the list of possible players who could leave Spurs.
Dier has struggled this season, with injury really curtailing his progress.
The £70,000-a-week (Spotrac) England international has looked off the pace, and it seems that Tottenham could be open to offers.
Spurs are also still thinking of selling Victor Wanyama, despite his resurgence of late.
Wanyama has featured regularly for Pochettino’s men in recent weeks, but he has not done enough to convince Tottenham that he is a starter over the long-term.
If Tottenham do sell both Wanyama and Dier they are said to be willing to bring in two new central midfielders.
