According to The telegraphLeicester City are ready to put pressure on Turin centre-back Gleison Bremer, who is also believed to be on Tottenham’s radar.

It has previously been reported that Tottenham chief football officer Fabio Paratici is a fan of Bremer and wants to bring him to north London this summer (CalcioMercato).

Liverpool are also expected to compete with Spurs for the signing of the Brazilian, with TuttoJuve backing the Reds to launch a €30m (£25m) bid for the defender.

The Telegraph has now revealed that Spurs could face competition from another Premier League rival in the form of Leicester.

The report claims that Brendan Rodgers is keen to refresh his options as a centre-back and the Torino star is high on the Leicester boss’ wishlist.

The Foxes are expected to put pressure on Bremer as they see him as the ideal choice to play at left centre-back.

It is claimed that Torino value the centre-back at around £40m ahead of the summer.

I think Conte will prefer a left-footed player for the left centre-back position to maintain balance. That’s why I don’t think Bremer is likely to be high on Tottenham’s wish list. Someone like Alessandro Bastoni or Pau Torres would arguably be a better fit for Conte’s system.
