Daniel Levy resolve tested as Tottenham to field two mega bids - reports
By Harry Sykes
The resolve of Tottenham to hang on to Kyle Walker and Eric Dier will be tested amid interest from big-hitting Premier League rivals, according to a report.
The Times claim Manchester United have placed Dier on their wanted list along with Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann as they aim to secure some mega-money summer signings.
It is said that Manchester City are also strongly pursuing Walker, who could cost around £30million to prise from White Hart Lane in the forthcoming transfer window.
The Mail recently reported that United are preparing a £40million bid for Dier.
The Times report that long-standing Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is set for some major decisions as interest in some of the players who have helped transform the fortunes of the team intensifies.

Right-back Walker and the versatile Dier, who splits his time between centre-back and central midfield roles, have been mainstays of the vibrant and youthful Tottenham side that have punched above their weight to secure third and second place finishes in the last two seasons.
The north Londoners demolished 2015-16 champions Leicester 6-1 on Thursday night to set up an end-of-campaign finale against Hull on Sunday in which victory would give them a remarkable 86-point tally for the season.
In most years that would be enough to win the title but Spurs have come up against an even more relentless winning side in newly-crowned champions Chelsea.
In a separate feature, The Times claim there is disquiet among the representatives of the Spurs squad that their wages do not reflect the achievements of the team in recent seasons, or the market values of the players.
