Liverpool preparing bid to recruit Ligue 1 centre-back, player wants move



Liverpool have emerged as surprise targets for highly rated Toulouse star Jean-Clair Todibo ahead of the January transfer window.

The departure of Issa Diop to West Ham opened a spot for the youngster this summer and he has grasped the opportunity.  Todibo has put in some quality performances this season for the Ligue 1 side which has alerted curious glances across Europe.

Liverpool have been monitoring the promising centre-back and could take advantage of his current contract situation to complete a transfer for the 18-year-old. Todibo is yet to sign a professional contract with Toulouse despite being offered a contract. This has caused an uncertainty over his long-term future with the French side.

Liverpool are well equipped to offer the player a contract which would see the defender move to Anfield in the summer on a free transfer. Premier League side Wolves are also interested in the defender and have the player on their radar.

Todibo would be a steal for the Reds as they could get the next Van Dirk who could continue his development under Jurgen Klopp.  Todibo has made 10 league appearances already this season scoring once for the French side.
