Tottenham Hotspur: Fabio Paratici refuses to rule out Gleison Bremer signing

Tottenham Hotspur: Fabio Paratici refuses to rule out Gleison Bremer signing -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report in the paper edition of Tuttosport, as shared by Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur transfer chief Fabio Paratici has just dropped a transfer hint – and it involves Torino defender Gleison Bremer.

The Lowdown: Serie A raid incoming?

Tottenham’s first January transfer window under new boss Antonio Conte is certainly set to be interesting going by the number of reports from Italy over these last few weeks.

Can you name all of these forgotten Spurs wonderkids? This guy was once called 'the next Didier Drogba'...

From rumours of a demanded €280 million (£235m) transfer war chest to a ‘close’ agreement for AC Milan star Franck Kessie, the winter window will ultimately decide whether these grand claims come to fruition.

New names are being targeted from Serie A regularly, too, with Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski recently entering Conte’s thoughts as contact is made, according to Daniele Longo.

Now, in an update on yet another Italian top flight target as they eye Bremer, Tuttosport claim that Paratici has dropped a teasing hint for his ‘Italian confidantes‘.

The Latest: Paratici drops hint…

As explained by the newspaper, via Sport Witness, Spurs’ managing director reportedly ‘has not denied’ his interest over signing Bremer in 2022 to his national colleagues.

Relayed in the report, this comes as a big hint towards Paratici’s personal plans to target the Brazilian defender and a move could take place during the second half of the campaign.

His current deal expires in 2023 and it appears Tottenham could turn to him in the summer.

The Verdict: Ideal Romero partner?

While it is debated that Conte needs a world class partner for Romero as soon as possible, as claimed by pundits in the media (Paul Robinson, Football Insider), would Bremer be worth the wait?

The 24-year-old, who Torino rate at around €30m (£25.2m) according to Tuttosport (via SW), towers over Tottenham’s current crop in certain defensive aspects.

According to WhoScored, Bremer has averaged an imperious 3.9 interceptions per 90 so far this season domestically – nearly double Sergio Reguilon, who’s managed the most for Spurs (2).

He also won more aerial duels per 90 (3.8) than any Lilywhites man this campaign, perhaps indicating he would come as a solid partner to Romero.

So, the South American colossus is fairly young, dominates Spurs players aerially and through interceptions whilst also being valued at a fairly reasonable £25.2m? We certainly believe he could be a shrewd capture next summer.
