Torino’s Brazilian centre-half Gleison Bremer was linked to multiple Premier League sides in the latest months, as his season with the Serie A outfit seems to be drawing interest from plenty of pretenders.
Now in the past several days, it’s been stated that Chelsea are about to enter the race for the 24-year-old star as well and according to a fresh report from Italy, the west Londoners could already be in the lead for the player’s signing.
As cited by Tutto Mercato Web, an Italian outlet Tuttosport writes that the Stamford Bridge outfit are currently in pole position to get Gleison.
Il Toro are struggling to agree on a contract extension with the centre-back, and since his existing deal expires in June 2023, they should try to get a sale in earlier 2022 to avoid any chance of losing him for nothing.
“It’s really England that is the next, perhaps imminent, destination,” writes the newspaper, claiming he could leave the club as soon as January.
Tutto Mercato Web does not say how much Thomas Tuchel’s side would spend on the signing. The latest reports have been stating that it should take between €20 million and €25 million to take him from Ivan Juric’s side.
