Everton have joined the chase for Arsenal and Newcastle United target Gleison Bremer, with Torino, set to demand £41 million for their star defender.
According to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport, as relayed by Goodison News, there’s significant interest brewing in the Premier League for Torino defender Gleison Bremer in the summer. Arsenal and Newcastle United face competition from Everton, who are seeking a new towering presence at the back.
Everton are at a crossroad in the 2021/22 season. The Toffees are not in the relegation zone but face an uphill task to avoid dropping into the Championship. There are plenty of games to get over the line, and Frank Lampard will rally his side to get positive results between now and the end of the season.
If Everton’s woes continue in the Premier League, the Toffees are expected to make significant reinforcements in key areas of the squad, particularly, in central defence. The Merseysiders are already linked with a move for James Tarkowski to improve their central defensive ranks, but they might be looking at other options just in case.
Torino’s £41 million-rated centre-back Gleison Bremer has emerged as a target for Everton. They face tough competition from many clubs for the Brazilian defender. Bremer has been immense for the Serie A side this season, and he continues to attract attention from big sides.

Newcastle United, who are keen on bolstering their backline in the summer, likes the Brazilian defender. The £41 million price tag may not deter their ambitions. The Magpies will have to battle some top German clubs, Arsenal and Liverpool for the defender.
Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing the Brazilian, even though Mikel Arteta might not be particularly keen to bolster his team’s central defensive options. The only possible explanation for their interest could be the uncertainty surrounding William Saliba’s future.
The Gunners have shown their ability to spend big if a necessary target becomes available and may be ready to do so in Bremer’s case. Liverpool are also interested in the Brazilian defender, although the Torino man could join a side where he will play regularly.
If the interest in Bremer continues to grow, it would be hardly a surprise if he decides to leave Torino. The Serie A side may well look to get top value for one of their prized assets and will be hoping a transfer battle ensues for the Brazilian, especially with Everton joining Newcastle United and Arsenal in his pursuit.
