Everton in hot pursuit of £41m-rated defender

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Everton have their sights on Torino defender Gleison Bremer.

Newcastle United and Arsenal have shown an interest in the 25-year-old centre-back, who has become one of the top players in Serie A.

Everton scouts have been watching him this season, according to GDS, and they’ve been impressed.

As he nears the peak of his professional career, he has put out a string of excellent performances.

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in signing him.

Torino is expected to seek somewhere between $40 and $41 million for the Brazilian centre-back. As a result of his performance this season, the value could also rise.

Everton manager Frank Lampard plans to reshape his squad in the summer, and a new defender is an essential part of that.

Some of the team’s fringe players must be sold in order to raise money for new acquisitions. It’s difficult to envision them spending a lot of money on Bremer when there are so many other possibilities.
