European champions Chelsea are reportedly chasing Torino’s Brazilian defender Gleison Bremer.
So how did he end up in Serie A? Bremer signed a five-year contract in 2018 from the talent factory that is Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.
He has since marked 76 Serie A appearances at 24.
“The European champions scouts are understood to have watched Bremer in action against Empoli last week and they have been impressed by the powerful defender,' the Sun reported.
“Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool have been linked with the Brazilian, but now Chelsea are ready to join the race for the talented centre-back.
“And the Italian club are bracing themselves for offers for Bremer as he enters the final 18 months of his contract at Torino.
“Torino paid just £5.2million for the Brazilian's services. However, the Italian side will be hoping to make a substantial profit on the talent they bought three years ago,” the reported added.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are preparing to battle Everton in the Premier League on Thursday.
