Liverpool Among Clubs Hoping To Recruit This Serie A Defender: Good Choice For Klopp?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Tuttosport claimed that Liverpool are among several clubs hoping to recruit Torino defender Bremer. It has been mentioned that the Reds could face stiff competition from Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli in pursuit of the Brazilian centre-back this summer.

Bremer’s Impressive Campaign In Italian Football So Far

Bremer has been a rock at the back for Torino during this campaign as he has put in a number of solid displays at the heart of their backline. The 24-year-old has found the back of the net twice and secured one assist in 25 matches for the Italian outfit this season across all competitions.

The Itapitanga-born defensive ace deserves a lot of credit for averaging 1.4 tackles, 3.5 interceptions, 3.5 clearances, 0.9 shots and 0.5 dribbles per game in Serie A. He has even been tidy when distributing the ball from the back after completing 81.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Is Bremer A Good Choice For Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp?

Bremer has been a dominant presence for Torino on the defensive end of the field as he can use his strong 1.88m frame to overpower the opposition attackers in the air inside his penalty box.

The Brazilian sensation is a solid tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to earn possession back inside his half. He is usually accurate when passing his way out from the back which makes him a decent fit for Jurgen Klopp‘s style of play at Merseyside.

At 24, Bremer’s best years are ahead of him, so Liverpool would do well to win the race for him this summer. He has what it takes to become a future star at Anfield.

We can expect the South American centre-half to add more depth to Klopp’s defensive department. Plus, he could serve as a good replacement for Joe Gomez, who has been quite injury-prone in recent seasons, at the Merseyside club. All in all, Bremer will be a great choice for the Reds to pursue when the transfer window commences at the end of this campaign.
