According to O Record, Andre Villas-Boas is preparing a £4.2m offer for Sporting Lisbon's 19 year-old English centre back, Eric Dier.

Dier moved to Lisbon when he was ten years-old after his mum accepted a new job in Portugal during Euro 2004.

He was spotted by scouts at school and joined the youth set-up at Sporting Lisbon, where he broke into the first team last season.

Fulham are also thought to be interested.
