With West Ham set to embark on a Europa League campaign, David Moyes will be wanting to strengthen his squad depth and someone that would prove to be a handy signing is Gleison Bremer who is suited for the Premier League, according to Forza Italian Football editor in chief Conor Clancy.
The Hammers made a smart signing at centre back last season when they brought in Craig Dawson and Moyes could go one better by bringing in Bremer who has stood out in a very poor Torino side.
If Moyes is wanting to play with three centre backs next season then he must add more depth and he has been tipped to do so by splashing out on the 24-year old who is capable of playing as a centre back and potentially a holding midfielder given his ability on the ball.
Torino finished just three points above the relegation zone and that highlights how highly regarded Bremer is that he is still standing out and he appears ready for the Premier League, according to Clancy who spoke exclusively to Football FanCast:
“If we’re going to tick the boxes of all the old stereotypes where you’ve got to be a little bit strong and powerful and able to go the distance in a physical battle, then absolutely he’d suit it.
“He could probably play in a deeper midfield role as well as at the back so I think he could do quite well in England, but he’s not had an easy time in a terrible Torino team.”
Moyes often favoured a back three consisting of Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Dawson and the introduction of Bremer could see that defensive unit who faltered at the back end of the season really shore up.
If Bremer came into the Premier League and continued with his excellent ball-playing ability then the Hammers may allow themselves to play 10 yards higher up the pitch and impose themselves on a lot more matches next season.
