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 print edition, Gazzetta dello Sport mentioned Newcastle United are set to rival Arsenal for Torino defender Gleison Bremer. It has been mentioned that the Magpies are one of the admirers of the Brazilian talent during the summer transfer window.

Bremer’s Decent Run Of Form At The Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino

Bremer is having a strong campaign at Turin as he has been responsible for producing a series of dominant displays at the heart of Torino’s backline. The 25-year-old has scored three goals and picked up one assist in 30 matches for the Italian outfit this season on all fronts.

The Itapitanga-born sensation deserves a lot of credit for averaging 1.4 tackles, 3.4 interceptions and 4.0 clearances per 90 minutes in Serie A. He has also taken care of the ball when distributing possession from inside his half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 82% in league football (stats via whoscored).

What Will Bremer Bring To Newcastle United?

Standing at 1.88m, Bremer can use his strong frame to dominate the opposition forwards in the air and can sense the danger quickly to earn the ball back for his team on the defensive end of the pitch when is playing well at the back.

The Brazilian sensation is a solid tackler of the ball and doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball to clear the danger if required. He also excels at playing his way out from the back which makes him a perfect option for the Magpies to pursue when the transfer window reopens later this year.

At 25, Bremer is only going to get better with each season. Thus, it makes sense for Newcastle United to engineer a move to lure him to the northwest of England in the summer.

We can expect Bremer to bring a lot of bite and steel to Eddie Howe‘s defence. He will undeniably increase competition for places within the Magpies’ match-day squad. The South American sensation could even help the Tyneside giants challenge for a top-half finish in the Premier League over the next few years.
