Liverpool face more competition in chase for Torino No.3 defender

Fulham, West Ham United and Everton are all keeping tabs on the Liverpool defensive target Bremer, it has been reported in Italy.

Bremer, who currently plays for Serie A side Torino, has been attracting admiring glances from abroad, with multiple Premier League outfits holding an interest.

The defending Premier League champions Liverpool are stated to have touched base with the defender’s agent during the winter transfer market over a potential move.

Bremer may still be on the Anfield side’s radar in the event they need to land another centre-back in the summer transfer market.

According to local outlet Toro News, the Reds’ league rivals Everton, West Ham United and Fulham are also monitoring the Brazilian’s situation at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.

Il Toro’s management are aware of the increased interest in their player and are keen on tying their player down to a fresh long-term deal.

Bremer’s current contract at Torino is due to end in the summer of 2023 and the board have made initial contact with the South American’s entourage in hopes of renewing his contract.

He has been a fixture in the Torino side thus far in the current campaign, starting 19 of their 23 Serie A matches, and it remains to be seen whether Bremer will play in the Premier League next season.

Elsewhere, Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has claimed that his teammate Roberto Firmino is the member of the German coach Jurgen Klopp’s attacking trio who deserves the most praise.

In quotes attributed to The Mirror, Sadio said: “He deserves more credit than me and Mo, for sure. But it is part of football, (people) always seeing the goals scored.

“But without Bobby, I don’t see me and Mo score as many goals as we have, to be honest. He makes everything easier for us.”
