According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur is considering a transfer for Juventus’ Brazilian defender Gleison Bremer.
Ange Postecoglou is allegedly aiming to sign a top-tier central defender, and Tottenham is ‘ready’ to pay more than €40 million for the player, according to a report from Fichajes.
Since joining the team, Bremer has played a significant role for Juventus and is a leader in the locker room.
For Max Allegri, the 26-year-old is a crucial asset, but it is unclear whether the Italian team is willing to sell him.
Tottenham reportedly wants to finalize his move “as soon as possible,” while other Premier League teams are reportedly interested in acquiring the South American defender.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can recruit the player this summer despite stiff competition from their rivals.
They have added players like Micky van de Ven and Ashley Phillips during the summer transfer window, and they might have a strong team if they add one more top-notch central defender to their defense.
Tottenham gave up 63 goals in the league last season; if they want to contend for big trophies, they will need to make improvements in this area. If Eric Dier departs the club in January, Spurs will need to find a suitable replacement for him given that players like him have been connected with moves away from the club.
Whether they can finalize a deal for Bremer is still up in the air.
Garth Crooks claims Tottenham man now plays better without Harry Kane in the team
Garth Crooks, a BBC Sport analyst, claims Son Heung-min has improved significantly since being anointed the team’s captain.
He has consistently performed for Spurs and has been one of the team’s greatest players for a number of years.
He scored a hat-trick against Burnley in their 5-2 victory, then on Sunday, he scored twice against Arsenal.
The Tottenham skipper has now scored five goals in as many games.
He had a difficult season last year while playing for Italian boss Antonio Conte, scoring just 10 league goals.
But with the Australian manager in charge, he is back to his best.
And according to Garth Crooks, Son has significantly improved since being named captain.
After the match, he spoke to BBC:
“Tottenham performed admirably against their opponents in north London. It takes real grit, and Son showed plenty of it, to fall behind twice away at Emirates Stadium after the most stunning penalty decision was made against you.
“Since Harry Kane left for Bayern Munich, I’ve noticed a maturity in Son’s game that I haven’t noticed before. This season, I also see a better team player. Son scored both goals for Tottenham with precision.
There have been rumors that Tottenham would soon present him with a new, generous deal that will allow him to earn a sizable salary from the team.
The player reportedly wants to extend his stint at the North London team as well.
