Tottenham Hostpur have entered into negotiations over a deal to bring Gleison Bremer to the Premier League this summer.
What’s the talk?
That’s according to a report by Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), who claimed that Tottenham’s transfer team have recently travelled to Italy in order to begin talks with Torino regarding the transfer of the centre-back, with initial contact thought to have already been made by the north London club.
The report added that Fabio Paratici has identified the 25-year-old as a transfer target due to the Brazilian possessing characteristics which make him well-suited to Antonio Conte’s style of football. It is also claimed that Torino themselves would be willing to part with Bremer for a fee in the region of €50m (£41.5m).
Big coup for Spurs
Bremer has been in remarkable form for Torino this season, with the centre-back’s performances reported to have caught the eye of the likes of Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal. Therefore, it is clear to see that it would be a big coup for Spurs if Paratici is able to get a deal over the line for the 25-year-old this summer.
Do you think Bremer would be a good signing for £41.5m?
Indeed, over his 29 Serie A outings this term, the £27m-rated defender has been imperious in the heart of Ivan Juric’s backline, helping his side to keep eight clean sheets, in addition to making 3.4 interceptions (the most in the league), 1.4 tackles and 3.9 clearances and winning 6.7 duels per game.
The £53k-per-week Brazilian has also chipped in for his team going forwards, bagging three goals and providing one assist, along with making 36.7 passes, playing 2.8 long balls, completing 0.6 dribbles and taking 0.9 shots per match.
As such, it is clear to see that Bremer would make a fantastic addition to Conte’s current options at the back, leading us to believe that Paratici simply must do everything in his power to try and get a deal for the Torino titan over the line this summer.
