Gleison Bremer has emerged as one of Serie A’s hottest performers this season, and his consistent performances have not gone unnoticed. Come June, a big transfer market tussle is expected for the 25-year-old as several top European sides eye his signing.

According to reports from Gazetta (h/t GIFN), Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs, Bayern Munich, and Atletico Madrid are interesting in swooping the player in the summer.

Moreover, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and AC Milan are keeping tabs on the player too.

Torino are said to be looking for €50 million for their defender. Needless to say, their demands are considered high by the suitors.

The Brazilian international has started 29 games for Torino this season in Serie A alone, averaging 88 minutes per game. He has scored three goals and provided one assist.

His physicality and awareness in defense make him a hot asset for the Italians. Not only is his mere presence daunting, but his ability to dominate the air and lead from the front are seen as desirable.

His defensive numbers are mind-boggling, as he averages 3.4 interceptions, 1.4 tackles, four clearances and seven duels won every ninety minutes.

Given that Atletico Madrid often play a back-three it is criminal that Simeone has just four options at his disposal. Moreover, Stefan Savic and Felipe are already 31 and 32 respectively, and need replacements for the coming season.

Los Rojiblancos face tough competition for Bremer’s signing with sides like Inter Milan and Liverpool ahead in the race. Moreover, the €50 million price tag is a factor that will deter Simeone’s side from their pursuit.

Tottenham Hotspur hold an interest in key Atletico Madrid duo

According to MARCA, Tottenham Hotspur have shown an interest in signing key Atletico Madrid stars Yannick Carrasco and Jan Oblak and could look to make a move for the duo in the summer.

Tottenham and Atletico have fostered a good working relationship in recent times, with the Rojiblancos signing Sergio Reguilon on loan from the Premier League club in the summer.

Following that, the Colchoneros secured the signing of Matt Doherty in January on a free transfer after Tottenham handed him a letter of freedom so that he can join the La Liga club.

Now, it is being claimed that Tottenham could look to capitalise on it and act on their interest in both Carrasco and Oblak.

Carrasco has been a topic of interest at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time now. The Lilywhites have even made attempts to sign him in the past but were unable to pull off the transfer.

However, with the 29-year-old reportedly disgruntled at Atletico, a summer exit could be on the cards. Barcelona have secured an option to sign the winger for a fee of €20 million in the summer, but Tottenham could offer more if they are serious about signing him.

Meanwhile, Oblak has also been on the radars of Tottenham for some time. With captain and first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris nearing the end of his career, the north London club have identified the Slovenian ace as a possible replacement for the Frenchman.

Oblak has been a permanent fixture in the lineup at Atletico Madrid for close to a decade now. But he harbours hopes of playing in the Premier League while he also wishes to challenge for trophies – something that has not happened at Atletico this term or the last season.

It could compel him to consider a move away from the Civitas Metropolitano, and Tottenham would be lying in wait if such a scenario materialises.
