'Complete' Gleison Bremer wins Serie A's Best Defender award

Reported Liverpool target Gleison Bremer won a Serie A award on Friday. The Brazilian has had a brilliant campaign.

Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer picked up Serie A’s Best Defender award ahead of his team’s game with AS Roma. It comes after a campaign that saw him explode from a promising player into one of the very best in Italy.

“A complete and modern defender,” says a Tweet from the official Serie A account.

Bremer’s success does come with a cost for Torino, of course. The Brazilian is widely expected to leave the club this summer, with various sides lining up to sign him.

One of those could be Liverpool, who have been linked with Bremer for some time now. Corriere Granata claimed all the way back in December 2020 that the Reds wanted the player.

That, of course, was in the middle of a defensive crisis. Times have changed, both for Liverpool and Bremer. But that isn’t to say there’s no chance of his arrival.

Goal actually wrote in April that Liverpool still want Bremer, with Inter the favourites to sign him. They have the price at around £20m, too.

The Telegraph, though, say Leicester City are in the race – and that the price has risen to £40m. That’s a long way from the £5.4m Corriere Granata initially claimed over a year ago. If he’s the player Liverpool want, they missed a chance to snap him up for cheap.

And it should be said that Liverpool might want a centre-back. Reports from Italy suggest they have eyes on Matthijs de Ligt, for instance – Bremer could be an alternative to him. We imagine any plan hinges on Joe Gomez departing, however.

So Bremer is perhaps one to watch here. Liverpool could well decide to finally make a move this summer for a wonderful player. Just at a far higher price than if they’d taken a chance in early 2021.
