Liverpool have made an offer of €60 million for Juventus star Gleison Bremer

Liverpool are making significant moves to bolster their defence this summer, with Juventus’ Gleison Bremer emerging as their top target. According to The Standard (h/t Fichajes), the Reds have already submitted an offer of around €60 million to secure the Brazilian international’s services. This bid reflects Liverpool’s serious intent to reinforce their backline ahead of the 2024/25 season under new manager Arne Slot.

Bremer, who made his name at Torino before transferring to Juventus for over €45 million, has been a crucial part of the Italian giants’ defence over the past two seasons. During the 2023/24 season, he appeared in 40 matches and even contributed three goals. His ability to read the game, intercept passes, and his aerial prowess have been vital for Juventus, making him a standout performer in Serie A.

Despite Bremer’s importance to Juventus, the club is considering cashing in on the 27-year-old defender due to their financial situation. With four years remaining on his contract, selling the Brazilian could provide Juventus with the necessary funds to reinforce other areas of their squad. The final decision on his future is expected in the coming weeks, with multiple clubs monitoring the situation closely.

Liverpool, however, appear to be the frontrunners in this transfer race. Their proactive approach, demonstrated by the €60 million bid, showcases their commitment to strengthening their defensive lineup. Bremer’s physical presence and defensive capabilities would make him an ideal partner for Virgil van Dijk, addressing Liverpool’s need for more quality and depth at the heart of their backline.

Arne Slot, set to lead Liverpool in the 2024-25 season, is keen on fortifying the squad with strong defensive reinforcements. His focus on a robust backline aligns with Liverpool’s ambition to compete at the highest level in both domestic and European competitions. Bremer’s addition would provide the necessary physicality and tactical acumen, enhancing the overall defensive stability of the team.

The 27-year-old was an unused substitute in all four of Brazil’s games at the 2024 Copa America. Whether he will join Alisson Becker at Anfield this summer remains to be seen.

Securing Bremer could be a smart move for Liverpool. The Brazilian’s proven track record in Serie A, combined with his defensive attributes, makes him an excellent fit for the Premier League. While Juventus’ financial needs might facilitate this transfer, Liverpool’s willingness to meet the €60 million valuation demonstrates their serious intent. If the deal goes through, it would not only strengthen Liverpool’s defence but also give them another leader at the back.
