BAYERN MUNICH are reportedly keen on reuniting Harry Kane with his former Tottenham teammate Eric Dier.
The Bundesliga giants have ruled out Chelsea star Trevoh Chalobah and have turned to Dier in hopes of strengthening Tuchel's defensive options.
Dier, 29, has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of Ange Postecoglou.
The Englishman was linked to a summer exit but pleaded to stay and fight for his place on the Aussie's squad.
He made 31 league appearances last season but is yet to play a single minute this term.
Summer signing Micky van de Ven has replaced Dier's position and formed a solid bond with Cristian Romero in Spurs' backline.

With the absence of European football for the North London club the first-choice pair have fewer games on hand.
Dier has made the match-day squad just three times this term and is yet to come off the bench.
According to German outlet Bild, Tuchel aims to recruit a centre-back in January with Chelsea's Chalobah said to be his No1 target.
But it is now unlikely for the defender to make a move to Germany in the new year as Bayern bosses are against the transfer.

Now the German boss is looking at other defensive options and Dier is set to be on the cards, the report claims.
There will be good recommendations on Dier from newcomer and close pal Kane.
Kane left for the Bundesliga giants at the start of the new term and has had a tremendous start with ten goals.
Dier's contract is set to expire next summer and Bayern may put in a pre-contract agreement to sign the defender for free next summer.
But with Tuchel's side in an injury crisis with five players out on the sidelines, he could target a January move instead for a small fee.
