Premier League clubs Liverpool are reportedly at the top of the queue for Turin defender Gleison Bremer.
The Reds appear to be quite well positioned in the center-back division as new signings Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Nat Phillips all battle for two spots on the grid.
However, Italian website TuttoMercatoWeb claim Liverpool are monitoring Brazilian center-back Bremer at Serie A team Torino.

Bremer, who has ever been associated with LiverpoolHe came to Turin in 2018 from Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro, with the 24-year-old playing 71 Serie A games during his time in Turin.
His contract ends in June 2023 with the ‘Renewal Game’ starting in Turin to tie him to a longer contract.
TuttoMercatoWeb adds that the Turin executive board – which currently pays him 500,000 euros a year – “has to put a good offer on the plate” in order to secure Bremer’s services in the long term.
The defender’s “exponential and constant growth” has put him on the radar of a number of clubs, with Manchester United recently taking part in the race for signing.
However, it is Liverpool that are “the most active” club in pursuing its signature, with Napoli now “watching” the situation closely.
Turin Bremer is believed to be worth at least € 25m as a number of clubs are “watching” the center-back.
Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Matip is delighted to be back at Van Dijk’s side and he has also praised new signing Konate.
“It was great for me to play with Virgil again,” Matip told Liverpool FC magazine. “It took a long time to get out and I’m really happy to see him back on the pitch.
“He’s the complete central defender. He’s calm with the ball and great against the ball. He’s leading when we play and we missed him, but now he’s back and that’s good for us.
“Ibou has settled in really well. It always takes some time to get used to the general and the defense in order to get a good connection.
“It takes time before I know how he will react and he knows how I will react. We trained a lot together and it will always take some time next to a new player, but he’s already going really well.
