A big update has emerged on Tottenham’s pursuit of Gleison Bremer in the summer transfer window…
According to TuttoSport, Torino chiefs are set for a meeting with Spurs in London as Fabio Paratici plans to hold talks over a deal for the centre-back.
The report claims that the Italian supremo wants to improve the club’s defensive options and the Serie A tank has been identified as a key target.
Conte would love to have Bremer, who is reportedly valued at €50m (£43m), in his squad next season as he is an outstanding player with the potential to get better in the future.
The central defender would bolster the Italian’s options at the back and offer a possible upgrade on the likes of Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez, and Eric Dier.
He was dubbed a “monster” by journalist Maxi Angelo and his claim is backed up by the defender’s statistics in the Serie A last season.
In the 2021/22 campaign, he averaged an excellent SofaScore rating of 7.13. The gem made an astounding 4.7 tackles and interceptions and 4.0 clearances per game and this shows that he was a machine at the back for Torino as he consistently won the ball for his team and was in the right positions to cut out attacks on a regular basis.
Meanwhile, Dier made 1.2 tackles and interceptions, Sanchez made 3.1 and Davies managed 2.2 per game in the English top-flight. Whilst these are not terrible statistics from the Spurs players, Bremer has shown that he has the quality to come in and perform to a higher level than them.
At the age of 25, the Brazilian would also be coming in as a player with room to improve. He still has plenty of years left ahead of him to develop and Conte can work with him to help him fulfil his potential in the next few seasons – making him a crucial player for Tottenham in the process.
Therefore, the Italian head coach would love to have the gem in his squad next season as he would immediately improve the team, if he can adapt to English football, and would be a signing for the future as well.
