An offer is now being readied from Antonio Conte and Tottenham Hotspur to try and sign Gleison Bremer in the summer.
The Lowdown: Centre-back eyed
With the future of Joe Rodon in doubt, it looks as if Spurs will try and buy a centre-back for Conte this summer.
Should Tottenham sign Bremer?
Stefan de Vrij and Josko Gvardiol are the latest names to be linked with a move to Hotspur Way, and it will be interesting to see what kind of calibre of player the club can attract, depending on where they finish in the Premier League and what (if any) European competition they will be playing in next season.
The Latest: Offer ready
As per Tutto Juve, Tottenham would ‘try to convince’ Bremer and Torino to move in the summer with a ‘good proposal’, and their interest in the player is ‘predominant’.
However, they will face competition from Manchester United, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan for his signature.
The Verdict: Get it done
If the Lilywhites are going to sign a centre-back, then they should look no further than Bremer.
Described as an ‘animal‘ by fellow Torino defender Mergim Vojvoda, the 6 foot 2 powerhouse is currently averaging a WhoScored rating of 7.23 in Serie A this season. That is only bettered by Son Heung-Min among Spurs players in the Premier League (7.31), and interestingly the South Korean shares the same agent as Bremer.
