Torino defender Gleison Bremer, who is said to be wanted by Tottenham, is stalling on a new contract offer made by the Serie A club, according to a report in Torino Granata.
Spurs have been linked with several central defenders from the Serie A since Antonio Conte’s appointment at the start of the month, with Bremer alleged to be one of those on the North London club’s radar.
The Brazilian’s current contract runs out at the end of next season and TuttoMercatoWeb claimed two weeks ago that Torino were willing to triple the centre-back’s current £18,000 per week salary in order to ward off interest from the likes of Spurs.
Some sources then alleged that Liverpool had moved into pole position to land the 24-year-old, with the Reds set to accelerate negotiations for the defender.
However, Torino Granata’s latest update suggests that Spurs and AC Milan are the two leading contenders for Bremer’s signature.
The report claims that Torino have offered the centre-back a new contract worth around €1.5m (£1.2m) a year.
However, the club are said to be awaiting a response from the defender’s representatives, who allegedly want to explore the other potential offers on the table.

It was evident in the summer that Fabio Paratici was going for A-list centre-backs. Not only did we complete a deal for Romero but we were also reportedly ready to pay big money for Jules Kounde and Pau Torres.
While Bremer is a good talent, he arguably does not belong in the same top-tier category. So, it remains to be seen if there is any truth in the speculation linking us with a move for the Brazilian.
