Newcastle should revive Gleison Bremer interest amid Diego Carlos pursuit - Opinion

Newcastle United’s pursuit of Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos continues, and if PIF are successful they should then focus on signing Gleison Bremer.

It was reported on Tuesday night that Carlos has handed in a transfer request to leave Sevilla this month. It has also been claimed by Fabrizio Romano that he has agreed a five-year deal with the Magpies.

However, according to Orgullo De Nervion, a local outlet in Seville, the 28-year-old has travelled to Valencia for tonight’s La Liga game.

Things are going to have gather pace in order for the Brazilian to be available for Saturday’s trip to Leeds.

But whilst negotiations continue to land Carlos, here we explain why Newcastle should be looking to reignite interest in Carlos’ compatriot Bremer.

The Magpies were recently linked with a move for the Torino centre-half, who is also attracting interest from Inter Milan by The Mail.

Corriere Granata reported that Newcastle’s offer worth around €30milion (£25million) to sign Torino star Bremer was “immediately rejected”, with the Serie A side having no intention of selling the Brazilian right now.

Bremer’s current Torino contract expires next year and although the Italians want him to a sign a new deal, they run the risk of not cashing in on him whilst they have the chance.

The 24-year-old has been hailed as ‘really incredible’ by Romano and he is having an impressive season.

If Newcastle are successful in their pursuit for the aggressive and commanding Carlos, then the Saudi-led consortium should look to unleash an all-Brazilian centre-back partnership that could complement one and other.

No player across Europe’s top five leagues averages more interceptions per game than Bremer (3.5), according to WhoScored.

Alongside fellow reported Newcastle transfer target Nico Schlotterbeck, Bremer is currently ranked in WhoScored’s team of the year.

Unlike Carlos, Gleison Bremer is yet to capped for the Brazilian national side. But maybe a move to Newcastle alongside his compatriot could bolster his chances of breaking into Tite’s Selecao squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

We cannot afford to get ahead ourselves – we need to get the Diego Carlos deal over the line first.

But there is no reason why Gleison Bremer and Diego Carlos couldn’t conjure up a formidable and dominant partnership under Eddie Howe.
