Liverpool: £21m Klopp target won't complete Anfield transfer this summer

Liverpool-Jurgen-Klopp-Premier-League

Liverpool target Gleison Bremer is ‘probably going to Inter Milan’ in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Torino defender is widely expected to take the next step in his career ahead of next season after enjoying an outstanding 18 months at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.

What is the latest news involving Bremer?

Bremer joined the Bulls in July 2018 after the Serie A outfit snapped him up from Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro.

Since then, the 6 foot 2 ace has gone on to make 106 appearances for Ivan Juric’s charges, registering 13 goals and five assists, but it’s his contribution at the back that’s really impressed.

And according to GOAL, Liverpool are among the sides to have expressed an interest in signing the highly-rated 25-year-old, with Juventus and Inter listed as his other potential suitors.

The report states that Torino value their prized asset at €25 million (£21m) and are resigned to losing him at the end of the current campaign.

However, it’s also believed that the Nerazzurri are in ‘pole position’ to land the Brazilian centre-back after holding talks with his representatives over a potential move.

What has Jones said about Bremer?

Despite the interest from Liverpool, Jones has revealed ‘everything’ that he has heard regarding the South American’s future points towards him plying his trade at San Siro next term.

In an exclusive interview, he told GiveMeSport: “I’m not sure I can, to be honest (envisage Bremer moving to the Premier League).

“I mean, he’s a great player, but everything I hear suggests he’s going to sign for a big Italian club, and at this stage, he’s probably going to Inter Milan. That’s the noises that I’m hearing.”

Would Bremer be a good signing?

Despite playing for a side battling in mid-table, Bremer has established himself as one of the most dominant central defenders in the Italian top-flight.

As per FBref, the powerful yet elegant ace has ranked in the 99th percentile for interceptions, 98th for pressures, 96th for aerial duels won and blocks and the 89th for clearances amongst players in his position over the last year.

When was Liverpool’s Anfield ground built?

It’s no wonder, therefore, that some of European football’s biggest clubs are clamouring for his signature, and he appears destined to have a great career at the highest level.

Liverpool may rue missing out on his signature, but with the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate to call upon, Jurgen Klopp is currently well-stocked in the heart of defence.
