  • Spurs look to be in pole position although several Serie A clubs are ‘interested’

Torino director Davide Vagnati is preparing to fly to north London this week to discuss a deal with Spurs for defender Gleison Bremer, according to reports.

The 25-year-old was named Serie A Defender of the Season after a superb campaign in Turin, which helped his side claim 10th in the Italian top flight.

Bremer’s defending also led to Torino finishing with the fifth best defensive record in the division, bettered only by the league’s Champions League qualifiers AC Milan, Inter, Napoli and Juventus.

Spurs manager Antonio Conte is keen to bolster his defence ahead of next season, with Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni and Villarreal’s Pau Torres reportedly at the top of his wish list.

But according to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, Tottenham’s director of football Fabio Paratici is ready to welcome the Torino chief to the capital to negotiate a swoop for the Brazilian centre-half, who has also attracted interested from a handful of Italian clubs.

Juventus and Inter – two of Conte’s former clubs – are reportedly eager to secure Bremer’s services, as well as Serie A champions AC Milan.

However, it is believed that a move to north London is more likely, as the Italian clubs do not seem to have the financial resources to hand to match Torino’s asking price.

The club are only prepared to sell Bremer for a fee in the region of €30 million to €40 million – a price tag Tottenham are reportedly able to match.

Spurs have already been active in the transfer market this summer, strengthening Conte’s squad with goalkeeper Fraser Forster and wing-back Ivan Perisic on free transfers.
