Tottenham Hotspur have been repeatedly linked with Gleison Bremer and Wilfried Singo in recent months.
The pair currently play for Torino, with 25-year-old Bremer now seen as one of the best central defenders in Serie A, and 21-year-old Singo able to play at right-back or further forward on that side of the pitch.
Tuttosport is a Turin newspaper and they cover transfers at their local club, and Juventus for that matter, more than anyone else in Italy. In their Wednesday edition, it’s explained Tottenham are looking at signing the pair, in a double deal worth around €50m, and such a development would be bad news for Serie A clubs who are interested.
There’s been conflicting claims on what Bremer will cost, with Tuttosport stating he has a personal agreement that he can leave for around €25m, and others putting his value at double that.
Tottenham are said to be pushing ‘strongly’ for the pair, and after a request from manager Antonio Conte, Fabio Paratici has made ‘decisive’ moves. He first contacted Torino a couple of weeks ago for Singo, receiving a negative response.
That didn’t put Spurs off, Paratici has returned and instead wants to offer ‘cash’ for the pair.
The mention of ‘cash’ is significant because Serie A clubs with interest, such as Inter Milan, would likely try to use players as part of a deal.
