Report: Tottenham interest in Gleison Bremer driving his asking price up
Tottenham Hotspur may be about to get a bit of revenge on Inter Milan, with Calciomercato reporting that their interest in Gleison Bremer is set to dash the Nerazzurri’s hopes of signing the centre-back for as little as £30 million.
Antonio Conte’s former club have been key protagonists in Spurs’ summer so far. They have already signed Ivan Perisic from the Serie A side.
And it seemed that Alessandro Bastoni may be about to make the same move. Reports on Tuesday claimed that he had told Inter that he wanted to leave. He was keen to be reunited with Conte in North London.
However, Tottenham’s hopes of signing Bastoni appear to have been dashed. His agent has now confirmed that he wants to stay with Inter.
One player who may have been monitoring events is Bremer. Calciomercato reports that both Inter and Tottenham want the Brazilian.
Simone Inzaghi’s men had hoped to pay at most £30 million for the 25-year-old. But the report claims that Spurs’ presence in the race is pushing his price up.
Torino hope to spark an auction for Bremer. It is said that most of their summer spending will be funded by how much they make from selling the defender.
Tottenham interest in Bremer a blow for Inter
Ideally, Tottenham will respond to missing out on Bastoni by signing Bremer. Reports claimed that they are prepared to bid £42 million for him.
So they must certainly be in pole position. At the very least, Spurs look set to ensure that Inter have to pay a lot more than they would like if they are going to win the race.
Tottenham may well be a lot more determined to land Bremer anyway, now that Bastoni is staying put.
