According to Italian outlet Il Bianconero, Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Juventus defender Gleison Bremer.
The Brazilian’s performances have impressed Tottenham, who view him as an ideal addition to strengthen their backline.
Juventus could be open to selling Bremer for the right offer, as it would provide a cash injection that could be used to address areas in need of improvement.
The report adds that the player is attracted by the idea of playing in the Premier League and that “if the right proposal arrives, he could say goodbye“.
The 26-year-old possesses excellent reading of the game, strength in aerial duels, and good passing ability, making him a suitable fit for Ange Postecoglou’s team at Tottenham.
Postecoglou has acknowledged that the club is working hard to secure a center-back signing, as it is a priority area of focus.
Given Tottenham’s attacking approach under the Australian manager, a solid defense is crucial.
Tottenham had the poorest defensive record among the top half of the Premier League teams last season, conceding 63 goals, the highest tally in the top 10.
In addition to Bremer, Tottenham have also been linked with Micky van de Ven, Edmond Tapsoba, and Victor Nelsson.
There were reports of negotiations with Galatasaray for Nelsson, which involved a potential cash-plus-player deal with Davinson Sanchez going the other way.
As Tottenham continues its pursuit of defensive reinforcements, signing a player like Bremer could help strengthen their backline and improve their defensive performances in the upcoming season.
