West Ham: Irons learn Gleison Bremer price tag

West Ham: Irons learn Gleison Bremer price tag -West Ham News

Torino’s demands for reported West Ham United target Gleison Bremer have been revealed by Italian outlet Calciomercato

The lowdown

It was reported on Thursday that the 24-year-old featured on a shortlist of potential centre-back signings for West Ham, along with fellow Serie A stars Nikola Milenkovic and Daniele Rugani.

David Moyes has said that the Hammers could make defensive additions in January after being rocked by injuries – £29.8m summer signing Kurt Zouma suffered a serious hamstring injury last time out against Chelsea, potentially ruling him out for up to 12 weeks.

Angelo Ogbonna is already set to miss the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign, which leaves Craig Dawson and Issa Diop as the only fit natural centre-backs in the Irons’ senior squad.

The latest

The report from Calciomercato states that Torino value Bremer at €25m, which equates to about £21.3m.

AC Milan, who are said to be rivalling West Ham for his signature, apparently consider that price tag to be excessive.

Encouragingly for his suitors, while talks are ongoing at Torino over a new contract for the Brazilian, he ‘continues to say no’ in that regard, and his current deal only has one more full season left to run.

The verdict

The deals for Zouma and Diop (£22.5m) have shown that West Ham are happy to splash the cash on centre-backs they admire.

Is Bremer a good enough fit to merit another significant outlay? Intriguingly, he boasts a similar playing profile to another rumoured January target for the Irons, Burnley’s James Tarkowski.

The Torino ace is a proactive defender, ranking in the 96th percentile among positional peers in the top five European leagues for pressures and the 99th percentile for interceptions (via FB Ref).

What’s more, he has also shown that he can hold his own against elite strikers like Romelu Lukaku. Last season, he was hailed for an ‘incredible’ display up against the Belgian, who scored 24 goals in Inter’s Serie A triumph.

If Bremer can excel against such quality opponents, it would be hard for West Ham fans not to get excited about the prospect of signing him.
