Tottenham are keeping an eye on Gleison Bremer’s situation at Juventus as they look for new centre-backs to boost Ange Postecoglou’s backline this summer.
Bremer, 26, has been on Spurs’ radar since his time at Torino before joining Juventus a year ago, where he has impressed amid a turbulent season in which they were fined points and ended eighth in Serie A.
Other Premier League clubs are interested in the Brazilian international and are waiting to see if he will be released after only one season at Juventus. Outgoings are expected at the club, and his availability may be contingent on if others are offloaded first, with insiders not expecting approaches until late in the window.
Spurs have been looking at centre-backs and, as reported by the Telegraph Sport, have shown interest in Manchester United captain Harry Maguire, who has lost his regular starting place under Erik Ten Hag. They have also been linked with Bayer Leverkusen’s Edmond Tapsoba.
Clément Lenglet is returning to Barcelona following a season-long loan last season, while Davinson Sánchez might leave the club for the right price, according to new boss Postecoglou.
