Fabrizio Romano on€60M transfer Liverpool are poised to complete

In the wake of Joel Matip’s ACL injury in mid-December, Liverpool finds themselves in the market for a centre-back, and Jean-Clair Todibo from OGC Nice has emerged as a prime target.

With a reported €60 million move on the horizon, both Liverpool and Manchester United are vying for the 24-year-old’s signature in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The injury to Joel Matip, requiring surgery, has heightened the need for defensive reinforcements at Anfield.

With Matip’s contract set to expire in the summer and uncertainty about his return to the pitch, Todibo appears to be a promising candidate to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s central defense.

Liverpool leading the race for Jean-Clair Todibo
Recent reports from Nice-Matin, a source close to the Ligue 1 club, suggested that Liverpool are in the lead to sign Todibo, citing his close ties with fellow French defender Ibrahima Konate.

The report speculates that the duo could form the future backbone of Klopp’s defensive lineup. Despite Manchester United’s interest in the towering six-foot-three defender, Nice-Matin asserts that Liverpool have a stronger chance of securing Todibo’s services.

However, renowned Italian journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has contested this claim. Writing for Caught Offside, Romano refutes the notion that Liverpool is the clear favourite for Todibo’s signature, asserting that the situation will only become clearer “in the next months.”

He dispels the idea of a preferred destination for the French defender and emphasizes that Todibo’s potential move is slated for the summer, not during the current transfer window.
