Spurs now eyeing Bastoni alternative

Tottenham Hotspur could seal a perfect alternative to Alessandro Bastoni as another Serie A titan is targeted this off-season…

What’s the word?

According to reports in Italy, Spurs are eyeing up a move for Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer.

#Tottenham strong on #Bremer: the contacts between the player’s entourage and the Spurs continue. There is talk of a first offer around 35m € + bonus. On the Brazilian also #PSG and #Inter and other English clubs including Leicester (but Champions priority for him),” Toro newspaper Corriere Granata tweeted.

Should Spurs move for Bremer this summer?




Bastoni alternative

The Lilywhites’ pursuit of Bastoni has been quite frustrating with Inter Milan asking for a fee in the region of £51m and the player seemingly not willing to make the switch to the Premier League.

Bremer could be a very strong alternative, indeed.

As per WhoScored, the 25-year-old colossus ended the 2021/22 season as Torino’s best-performing player, averaging a rating of 7.22.

Over the past 365 years, the Brazilian ranks inside the top 1% of his positional peers across Europe’s top-five divisions for aerial duels won (4.80 per 90) and blocks (2.68 per 90) and the top 2% for pressures (16.85) and interceptions (3.64 per 90), via FBRef.

Not only that but he offers just as big a threat in the final third for his team, ranking inside the top 1% for non-penalty expected goals (0.13 per 90) and top 3% for touches in the opposition’s box (1.68 per 90).

This shows that the 6 foot 2 titan a defensive animal and also a massive nuisance in attack, too, which has to be a mouthwatering prospect for manager Antonio Conte, who must view him as a perfect option.

It’s no wonder that Bremer has been lauded as a “monster” by journalsit Maxi Angelo, as well as being “faultless” and “unbelievable” by Daily Express reporter Ryan Taylor.

If Spurs cannot secure a move for Conte’s former Inter gem, then the £27m-rated Torino titan is certainly a viable, solid and far cheaper alternative at around £30m.
