As reported by The Chronicle, head of recruitment Steve Nickson is eager to make move for Torino centre-back Gleison Bremer who has been on our radar for some time now.
The defender has enjoyed a much improved season with his Italian side, playing 33 times as they finished 10th after narrowly avoiding relegation last year just four points off of the bottom three.
Sitting in the heart of the back line, Bremer has played a crucial role in maintaining the fifth best defence in Serie A, earning him the award for best defender in the league.
Something that could work in our favour is that the 25-year-old is currently on the books of CCA Base who we have already worked with during the signings of both Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier in January.
The 6ft 2 man would also be another Brazilian target – alongside the likes of Lucas Paqueta, Renan Lodi, Raphinha etc – to go add to our impressive duo of Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton.
