CHELSEA have reportedly held talks to sign defender Jean-Clair Todibo, reports suggest.

The transfer window is now fully open and this will give Mauricio Pochettino the chance to get the backing of the board once again and add some fresh players to the squad.

It is no secret that Thiago Silva is looking to leave the club at the end of the season and head back to his homeland of Brazil – meaning the Blues have been looking for an immediate replacement for the Brazilian.

And that has led scouts to keep an eye on the performances of Tobibo – who has been attracting alot of Premier League interest over the past few seasons.

Tottenham have already held talks with Nice over the France defender, who has shone in Ligue 1 since leaving Barcelona in 2021, but it was reported that deal was on the brink of collapse as Spurs now turn their focus to Genoa’s Radu Dragusin.

Manchester United and Liverpool are among the other clubs linked with Todibo, while now report that we have now held talks over a possible deal for the defender.

It is believed a fee of £40-50 million should be enough to get a deal done for the powerhouse.

Tobibo is a real unit, a real powerhouse that has the potential to be a world class signing for the club – he really would be a great addition to that squad.
