- Reports claim Man United will make a move for Lucas Moura and Eric Dier
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees Moura as a key target over the next 12 months

Manchester United are reportedly considering making a move for Tottenham duo Lucas Moura and Eric Dier.
The pair have both failed to nail down a regular starting berth in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI so far this season and are said to be unsettled.
According to the Daily Star, Moura has emerged as a key target for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the past 12 months.
Manchester United are reportedly considering moves for Eric Dier and Lucas Moura
Moura was handed a five-year deal in July but has been in and out of Tottenham’s starting XI
Dier is yet to make an appearance this season after falling out of favour under Pochettino
The Brazilian can play in multiple positions in attack and at 27 would add much needed experience to a youthful United forward line.
Moura impressed in the latter stages of last season, with his hat-trick against Ajax firing Spurs to the Champions League final.
He has since been rewarded with a new five-year deal in July but is believed to be frustrated at Pochettino’s lack of faith in him as a regular starter.
Moura has either been named on the bench or been subbed in each of his five appearances this season.
Dier is another Spurs player United are reportedly keeping a close eye on following his dramatic fall from grace in north London.
The 25-year-old was previously one of the first names on the teamsheet but has been relegated to the bench after falling out of favour under Pochettino and is yet to make an appearance this term.
The club record signing of midfielder Tanguy Ndombele was a further nail in his coffin and he could now seek a move away from the club in January.
