Chelsea looking to trigger €50m release clause for Juventus star

Gleison Bremer will be the much needed reinforcement in defence

Chelsea Football Club has reportedly joined the race to sign Juventus centre-back Gleison Bremer, a move that could significantly bolster their defensive line-up. The West London side is said to be eyeing the Brazilian defender as a potential replacement for Thiago Silva, who is nearing the end of his career.

The Blues' interest in Bremer comes amid growing concerns about their backline. With Silva entering the twilight of his career and Wesley Fofana struggling with fitness issues since his move from Leicester City, there are clear gaps in Chelsea's central defence. Additionally, uncertainty surrounds Trevoh Chalobah’s future at Stamford Bridge and Axel Disasi’s consistency on the field.

These factors have led to speculation that Chelsea may bring in one or two new central defenders during this summer's transfer window.

Todd Boehly targeting many potential new recruits

In recent weeks, several names have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. Leny Yoro is reportedly being considered by Todd Boehly & Co., while Sporting’s Ousmane Diomande, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo and Barcelona’s Pau Cubarsi have also been mentioned as potential recruits.

However, it seems that Brazil international Gleison Bremer has emerged as a strong contender for a Premier League transfer. Despite signing a new deal with Allianz Stadium last December - which includes a €50 million release clause - reports suggest he could be bound for England soon.

Chelsea isn't alone in its pursuit of Bremer; Manchester United has also expressed interest in acquiring his services. This competition between two Premier League giants adds an extra layer of intrigue to this summer's transfer window proceedings.

Gleison Bremer has proved his mettle in Serie A

Bremer brings considerable talent and experience to any team he joins. The 26-year-old has played 28 times for Juventus this season, proving himself a stalwart in the Bianconeri's defence. His physicality and on-ball abilities could make him an excellent addition to Chelsea squad.

Moreover, Bremer’s potential move to Chelsea would see him replace his international compatriot Thiago Silva. This transition could provide continuity in the team's defensive style and approach.

As we head into the summer transfer window, all eyes will be on Chelsea as they look to strengthen their defensive line-up. Whether or not Gleison Bremer will be donning a Blues jersey next season remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: his potential arrival at Stamford Bridge would certainly shake things up.
