Fichajes have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur now have their sights set on Juventus defender Gleison Bremer as a January transfer target.
Tottenham are certainly short of numbers in central defence, with Eric Dier being the only senior centre-back that Ange Postecoglou could turn to if there is an injury to either Crisitan Romero or Micky van de Ven.
So, it does not come as a surprise that Fichajes are now suggesting that the Premier League side are prioritising signing a top central defender when the transfer window reopens.
Tottenham are willing to move for Bremer in January
The report states that the Lilywhites want to acquire Bremer’s services in January and are willing to spend more than €40m (£34.7m) on the Brazilian.
The outlet explains that even though the 26-year-old has been a mainstay of Massimiliano Allegris backline and has emerged as one of the leaders at Juve, he could be tempted by the opportunity to ‘try his luck in the Premier League’.
However, Fichajes add that Spurs are not the only English side to be eyeing Bremer, with the defender also said to be on the radars of some of their rivals.
It is suggested that although Tottenham want to ‘close’ the deal ‘as soon as possible’, the former Torino’s star price could shoot up if a bidding war ensues.
Spurs Web Opinion
There is absolutely no chance that Juve would be willing to sell Bremer for as low a fee as £35m. With the centre-back being contracted until 2027 at the Allianz Stadium, he is likely to cost a minimum of £50m in January, and potentially a lot more if other Premier League sides enter the race.
