Liverpool leading race to sign 6 ft 2 in Brazilian defensive rock

By | February 15, 2021

The Merseyside giants have set their sights on Gleison Bremer. The Torino defender has become the subject of a lot of interest in the transfer market following his displays in Serie A. Torino is also aware of the situation and are expecting several bids for Gleison this summer, with the player being valued at less than £10m.

Reds are among the teams looking to secure the services of Bremer, who has established himself as a top-class centre-back in Serie A. Gleison has already played 62 competitive games for Il Toro since initially joining the club back in 2018. His partnership alongside Lyanco has been a central feature in the team’s defensive unit.

Although Torino have conceded a whopping 41 goals so far this season, Gleison has been one of the rare bright spots, which is why the former Atletico Mineiro starlet has moved ahead of footballers like Nicolas N’Koulou and Armando Izzo in the pecking order.

Standing at 1.88m, Gleison’s imposing presence at the defence, coupled with his ability to play on the left-hand side of the defence makes him an appealing target for the Reds. In addition, the Brazilian defender has the physicality and the athleticism that are tailor-made for the PL, making him an interesting option for Liverpool.

From a financial perspective, Gleison’s meager £10m valuation makes him a cost-effective target for the Reds this summer, though it is extremely likely that the PL would want to explore other options, more established as they look to keep up with the likes of Man City and Man United in the long term.
