The defensive department of the Everton squad needs quality additions this summer.
The latest reports in England suggest that Everton are eyeing move for Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Brazil international joined Torino from Atlético Mineiro for a fee in the region of 5.8 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
In 42 appearances for Torino, Bremer has managed to score 5 goals, and create 3 goals for his teammates.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Brazil.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Everton.
Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign a new centre-back and Bremer is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Everton manager has been impressed by his performances last season and could make a move this summer.
The Toffees are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Gleison Bremer has been a good servant for Torino, and is a centre-back who places himself in the right positions in defensive situations. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Everton are interested in signing Torino’s Gleison Bremer after Carlo Ancelotti confirmed his desire to sign another centre-back before the transfer window closes. If the world hadn’t been turned upside down in March, Gabriel Magalhaes could have been plying his trade in the blue of Everton rather than the red of Arsenal right now. The £22 million powerhouse even underwent a medical with the Toffees in early 2020, according to the Independent. But while the Merseyside giants exploded out of the blocks in their search for a new centre-back, they clattered into the final hurdle with the global crisis scuppering Gabriel’s move to Goodison Park. Six months later, with injuries to Jarrad Branthwaite and Mason Holgate leaving Michael Keane and Yerry Mina as the only fully fit defenders at Everton’s disposal, Ancelotti is more desperate than ever for one more signing before the October deadline. He may not be Gabriel but, in Bremer, Everton have identified another classy Brazilian with huge potential. The Toffees have an almighty scrap on their hands, however. Torino president Urbano Cairo has made it clear Bremer is not for sale.”
