Transfer News: Chelsea keen to beat Tottenham Hotspur to Gleison Bremer
Spurs have wasted no time in putting the pieces in place for a successful summer transfer window. Ivan Perisic, their first outfield signing, has already been signed on a Bosman deal, and the 33-year-old is anticipated to play left wing-back. Fraser Forster has also arrived as a backup goalkeeper while Yves Bissouma adds steel to the midfield.
Antonio Conte is also interested in addressing the position of centre-back despite bringing in Cristian Romero last summer. Given the Italian coach’s preference for a back three, depth is crucial. The possibility of signing either Torino’s Gleison Bremer or Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni has grown. Links to Bremer, on the other hand, have been put on hold, with Bastoni reportedly being Spurs’ top transfer target.
Since joining I Granata from Atlético Mineiro in 2018, the Brazilian has appeared in 110 games for the club. The 25-year-old is ready to take the next step in his career by joining an elite club to compete for major prizes as he enters his prime years.
As a result, he has a slew of suitors, with Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Tottenham among the teams keeping tabs on his status. It was claimed that these concerned teams might have to fork out around £34.1million (€40m) to meet Torino’s demands.
Chelsea are believed to have made progress in the race as it seems the Blues have tabled an important opening bid for the Torino defender.
Since taking over as manager, Antonio Conte has strengthened our backline, but there is still a lot of work to be done moving forward. We’ve had a solid partnership with Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, and Ben Davies, however, Davies may be replaced with someone who is more natural in that role.
The Brazilian is a well-rounded, powerful defender who is strong in the air, capable of executing defensive tasks, and at ease with the ball in his hands.

In the meanwhile, joining Conte’s team might give Bremer a better chance of becoming a regular starter, given our choices. After all, Ben Davies, who isn’t even a natural centre-back, was a key component of the three-at-the-back system, hinting that the Serie A ace could have a chance.
Considering all the aforementioned points it would be a big blow if Chelsea secures the deal. To get this one across the line, Tottenham will have to persuade a lot of people, but primarily the Spurs should submit their bid at least to compete with the Blues.
