Torino defender Gleison Bremer has revealed that playing in the Champions League is “fundamental” for him amid reports linking him with Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs.

Bremer made the move to Torino in 2018 from Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro. He has already played 110 times for the Italian side.

The 26-year-old shone last season as he was named the best defender in Serie A.

Spurs is a step up from Everton – but should Richarlison be aiming even higher?

The centre-back has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all understood to be in talks over the signing.

Torino sporting director Davide Vagnati is said to want £45m for Bremer. He is under contract until 2024.

Bremer has now spoken out on his situation ahead of the 2022/23 campaign. He has admitted that “nothing is defined yet” regarding his potential exit from Torino:

“I don’t know where I will play, I am talking to my agent and at the moment, there is nothing defined yet,” Bremer said (via Football Italia).

“I am unsure whether I’ll remain in Italy or go abroad.

“One fundamental thing is to play the Champions League next season. This is fundamental to continuing my growth. We’ll define everything in the next few days or weeks.”

Elsewhere, ex-Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor thinks Arsenal should axe “absolutely dreadful” Ben White for William Saliba:

“I’ve watched Saliba a few times and he’s got that speed that you like to see in a centre-half and he’s very good at making the right decision at the right time,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.

“Arsenal’s defence is nowhere near good enough to get top-four. For me, Ben White is very overrated, I watched him against Newcastle towards the end of the season and he was absolutely dreadful.

“He lacks pace, he lacks aggression. Yes, he’s good on the ball but he’s not a defensive midfielder, he’s a centre-half.

“Arsenal need two centre-halves who are no nonsense and have both got speed. For me, Gabriel and Saliba would be my starters next season.”
