In a recent report, The Liverpool Echo has mentioned that Liverpool are set to rival Everton as both Merseyside clubs circle Torino defender Gleison Bremer ahead of a potential move in January. It is understood that the Reds are desperate to bolster their defensive ranks this winter following the long-term injuries to Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, so they have identified the Brazilian centre-back as one of their targets when the transfer window reopens at the start of next year (via The Liverpool Echo).
Bremer’s Season At The Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino So Far
Bremer has endured a tough start to this campaign as he has shipped in 13 goals in six league matches thus far. The 23-year-old has only managed to help his side pick up one win this season, but has got a goal to his name.
When we delve deep into his stats, the Brazilian defensive ace paints a far better picture as he is averaging 0.8 tackles, 2.2 interceptions, 5.2 clearances and 0.7 shots per game in the Serie A. He has even distributed the ball accurately when playing his way out from the back as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 84.4% in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).
The Itapitanga-born talent can benefit a lot from making a switch to a top club as he is clearly not having a good season at Turin. Like many players, he would be tempted with the opportunity to work with a world-class manager like Jurgen Klopp if Liverpool decide to move in for him during the January transfer period.
What Will The South American Defender Bring To Anfield?
Standing at 1.88m, Bremer is a towering presence at the heart of Marco Giampaolo’s defence. He is proficient at using his strength to overpower the opposition and win a lot of aerial duels at the back. As mentioned earlier, the Brazilian centre-back is averaging over two interceptions and five clearances per 90 minutes in the Serie A this season which highlights just how busy he has been for Torino on the defensive end of the field. He is also a threat from the indirect setpieces in the opposition half and has got a knack for scoring headed goals from time to time.
Is Bremer A Good Choice For The Reds?
Bremer is quite inexperienced at the highest level and doesn’t have a winning mindset that all of the Liverpool players currently possess. Hence, recruiting him in January could prove to be a calculated gamble by Klopp as he attempts to cope with Liverpool’s injury crisis in defence and sustain a title challenge this season.
Bremer will a good stop-gap option for the Reds to consider this winter. However, the Premier League champions will be better off opting for a more experienced and proven defender if they want to be successful in the second half of this campaign.
