Chelsea looking at signing £40 million Unit in summer splurge


CHELSEA FC have been watching Nice star defender Jean-Clair Todibo ahead of a possible move for the defender, and he could be a great signing for the club according to reporter Iomie Stanley

The transfer window is jist a few months away 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 Spurs opted to sign Genoa’s Radu Dragusin instead.

Manchester United and Liverpool are among the other clubs linked with Todibo, while have reported that the 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.

Reporter Iomie Stanley said: ‘Tobibo is a real unit, a real powerhouse that has the potential to be a world class signing for CHELSEA FC – he really would be a great addition to that squad.

‘Chelsea like to buy young players that they could mould – and although Todibo isnt as young as what the Blues board have been signing lately – he is certainly the type of player that they could turn into a world class act..

‘He could be a great signing for the club.’
