Liverpool ready to rekindle transfer interest in Torino defender Gleison Bremer this summer after failed January swoop

LIVERPOOL will look to address their defensive crisis by landing Torino's Gleison Bremer, according to reports.

The Reds were interested in landing the 23-year-old in January but were forced to look elsewhere.

Boss Jurgen Klopp instead loaned Ozan Kabak from Schalke and signed Ben Davies from Preston.

But both are seen as stop-gaps for the current campaign to bolster Liverpool's threadbare defence.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have all spent lengthy spells on the sidelines while makeshift defenders Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are also on the treatment table.

Bremer, 23, remains near the top of Klopp's transfer summer wishlist, write Tutto Sport.

The Brazilian joined Torino in the summer of 2018 from Atletico Mineiro and has established himself as one of Serie A's most promising centre-backs.

Liverpool will also look to strike a bargain deal should Torino face relegation from Serie A.

They currently sit five points above the drop zone while Gelson has a contract with the Italian side until 2023.

Liverpool are also looking at Fiorentina's Nikola Milenkovic having reportedly contacted the player's agent.

The 23-year-old Serbian international has been a stalwart in Fiorentina's defence this season with his side struggling in 14th.

Milenkovic is looking increasingly likely to move on at the end of the season with just 17-months left on his current contract.
