Tottenham Hotspur were one of the first names on the growing list of suitors for Torino defender Gleison Bremer but may have to pay as much as €50m to get him.
That’s according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, who say Tottenham are one of a long line of clubs interested in the Brazilian.
Bremer is enjoying something of a breakout season with the Italian side, establishing himself as the best defender in Serie A with a series of impressive performances.
This has not gone unnoticed, and numerous reports over the last few months have linked him with a move away in the summer transfer window.
His list of suitors grows by the day, and Gazzetta say Tottenham are in the queue, stating that they and the likes of Atlético Madrid, Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Leicester, Newcastle and Everton are all keen.
According to the newspaper, ‘everyone wants him’ but Torino aren’t willing to give him up without a fight, having extended his deal until 2024 not long ago.
In fact, the defender’s valuation has now ‘shot past the €50m mark’ courtesy of his performances, which have seen him keeping out some of the best strikers in the league.
That’s a big figure for anyone to pay, particularly for a defender, and whether the likes of Tottenham are willing to go that high isn’t mentioned. That’s what Torino could be looking for, though.
This is not the first time Spurs have been mentioned, with it claimed on the 14th that contacts have already started about a possible move.
Two days earlier, it was also stated that Bremer could be signed for €25m, not €50m, which is a far more reasonable price for the likes of Spurs to pay.
It really depends on how keen they are to back Antonio Conte and presumably if they get into the Champions League, but the interest is there nonetheless.
