Everton set to rival Liverpool for Torino’s defender Bremer

Everton are reportedly ready to rival Liverpool for the signature of Torino’s Bremer.

The Premier League champions have allegedly identified the 23-year-old as a possible January signing, having lost both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to long-term knee injuries.

Liverpool are expected to move for a new centre-back at the start of 2021, with Bremer seemingly fitting the bill, having made a strong start to the 2020-21 campaign with his Italian club.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Everton are also interested in the Brazilian, who has a contract with Torino until the summer of 2023.

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti has been critical of his team’s defending in recent weeks and is allegedly keen to add a new player in that area of the field during the January transfer window.

Bremer has made 48 appearances for his current side since arriving from Atletico Mineiro in 2018.
