Report: PL rivals join the chase for Liverpool target Gleison Bremer

Torino defender Gleison Bremer has become the subject of strong interest amongst Premier League clubs, according to reports. The Brazilian centre-back has previously been linked with Liverpool.

This comes from the Italian publication Toro News. They say that Everton, West Ham and Fulham are all considering making their move for the 6ft 2in powerhouse.

Bremer, 23, has been a huge success in the Italian top-flight since making the transition from Serie A in 2018.

He has also built up quite the reputation as goalscoring defender, too, scoring four times in the league this term.

A report from The Mirror previously claimed that Liverpool had identified the Brazil-born starlet as their top target for the upcoming summer transfer window.

What RTK has to say – Liverpool’s interest could hinge on Kabak

A lot of Liverpool’s reported interest hinges on the impact both Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies are able to sustain until the end of the season.

Indeed, Liverpool still have Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to return, which indicates any additional options this summer will be utilised as a back-up.

Kabak, 20, was brought in with a loan-to-buy option clause in his contract. Liverpool, then, have the option to look elsewhere should things not work out for him Anfield.

So, this could open up a position for Bremer should Liverpool choose to pursue their reported interest this summer.

He certainly has the scope to become a top player in a few years time, too. This could be an attractive proposition for Liverpool in the long-term, especially with Van Dijk and Matip both turning 30 before the beginning of the 2021/22 campagin.

Whether or not Liverpool are to move for Bremer, though, ultimately hinges on Kabak. There are still a number of games for him to cement himself as a long-term Anfield prospect.
