Liverpool are the Premier League club showing the most interest in Torino defender Gleison Bremer, but Inter Milan are favourites to get their man.
The Lowdown: Reds eye up Bremer move
The Reds have been linked with a move for the Brazilian a lot in recent weeks, with Jurgen Klopp potentially looking at bringing in a new centre-back this summer due to the exit links surrounding Joe Gomez.
Praised as a ‘star‘ in the division by Italian media, Bremer, who idolises Virgil van Dijk, has proved to be a dominant figure for Torino throughout the 2021/22 season, helping them sit 11th in the Serie A table and being handed four Man of the Match awards by WhoScored.
There looks set to be a battle for the 25-year-old’s services this summer, with a fresh claim suggesting Liverpool will be in the thick of it.
The Latest: New update emerges
That’s not to say that they are the front-runners to snap up the defender, however, with Inter currently in pole position. An agreement in principle is reportedly in place with the Serie A champions.
Sources in Brazil revealed Klopp ‘wants to sign’ Bremer though, and they may have one advantage over Inter because the Nerazzurri need to sell to buy – Liverpool do not.
The Verdict: Happy as fourth-choice?
The main stumbling block behind Bremer joining Liverpool is whether or not he is happy to play a squad role instead of being a key man every week.
In van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate, the Reds have three great options, while Gomez is also in contention should he stay on, which is debatable.
Bremer may feel that he could go straight in as a regular starter at Inter, which wouldn’t be the case under Klopp, possibly putting paid to a move to Anfield.
