Liverpool are reportedly the current front-runners to sign dominant Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Bremer’s monstrous season
The 24-year-old has been an impressive performer for Torino this season, making 25 starts in Serie A and helping his side sit 11th in the table.
Bremer has averaged 3.9 aerial duel wins per game, highlighting his prowess in that area of his game, and he has also enjoyed 3.5 clearances and interceptions apiece per match. To put that into perspective, all three of those numbers would rank in first place amongst the current Reds squad.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Brazilian in the past and an exciting rumour has now emerged.
The Latest: Liverpool favourites to sign defender
Jurgen Klopp himself is believed to have ‘great interest’ in snapping up the Torino man, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2024.
The Verdict: Goodbye, Joe Gomez?
Should this rumour be true, you have to wonder if it could spell the end of Joe Gomez’s time at the club, with the Englishman linked with a move away from Anfield earlier this week.
He is already fourth in the centre-back pecking order behind Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate, and Bremer surely wouldn’t be coming in as fifth choice.
The defender would be an exciting addition to Klopp’s squad, given his age and his aforementioned statistics this season, but whether or not he is happy to play a squad role remains to be seen.
In other news, Liverpool would reportedly jump at the chance to sign one player. Find out who it is here.
