Gleison Bremer’s price tag has doubled in the space of three months with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool rivalling Real Madrid and Barcelona for the £26 million-rated Torino defender, as reported by La Stampa.
Il Granata are stumbling along near the bottom of the Serie A table, hovering nervously above the relegation zone as vultures circle high in the Stadio Olimpico sky.
Andrea Belotti, Nicolas Nkoulou and Sasa Lukic have all been linked with Premier League clubs since the turn of the year.
Perhaps the most coveted member of Davide Nicola’s squad, however, is a commanding Brazilian centre-back with an eye for goal.
Liverpool are long-time admirers of the rapidly improving Bremer, speculation increasing amid doubts over the long-term futures of Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak at Anfield.
In February, ToroNews reported the classy 24-year-old also has admirers at West Ham United and Fulham, while Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton are also apparently in the race for the ball-playing Bremer.
But if Torino are going to lose their defensive lynchpin, the Bulls are determined they will be appropriately remunerated.
According to Il Stampa, Bremer was valued at about £13 million in January.
Now, with Real Madrid, Inter, Barcelona and AC Milan throwing their hat into the ring, Torino are suddenly demanding a fee closer to £30 million.
£26 million, if we’re being precise.
