Corresponding Gazetta dello SportArsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham will have to pay €50m to sign Gleison Bremer from Turin.
What’s the matter?
Well, the Brazilian’s reputation is growing by the week and Torino seem to be aware of it.
As a result, they almost doubled their asking price.
Just recently, Mikel Arteta, Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte were asked to pay £21million to sign the 25-year-old.
Now the Italian side have added £20million to that sum as they try to fend off Premier League interest.
This will obviously frustrate Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, although it is unlikely to put an end to their efforts given the resources at their disposal.
Tottenham should pay Bremer the asking price, not Arsenal or Liverpool
In our view, Spurs are the only side who can justify spending £41m on Bremer.
Conte needs more quality in the centre-back department to help Cristian Romero and Eric Dier, while Arteta and Klopp are not so desperate for centre-backs.
Liverpool already have Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate while Arsenal have Ben White, Gabriel Magalhães, William Saliba and Rob Holding.
If any Premier League club know Bremer’s true value it is Spurs given their strong Italian connections.
Fabio Paratici – Tottenham’s director of football – spent years in the same role at Juventus, where he forged solid connections as Conte did during his days as Serie A manager.
As such, we believe Tottenham will win this transfer battle, but keep an eye on developments as the saga unfolds.
