Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of defensive reinforcement intensifies as the North London club remains firmly linked with Jean-Clair Todibo.
The French defender, highly desired by Spurs, has emerged as a prime target to bolster their backline.
Renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported yesterday that Tottenham has initiated discussions with Nice regarding Todibo’s potential move to the Premier League outfit.
Romano highlighted the proactive approach taken by Spurs, engaging with both the player’s representatives and his current club to lay the groundwork for the transfer.
He further claimed that Tottenham are eager to expedite the deal for a center-back early in the January window and do not want to waste days on negotiations.
Latest reports from TeamTalk echo this sentiment, indicating that while Spurs could approach the £40 million mark for Todibo’s signature, financial concerns aren’t paramount.
Rather, the emphasis lies on the timing of any deal.
Crucially, it also asserts that Todibo himself is ‘keen on the move’ which could potentially facilitate smoother negotiations.
As talks progress, all eyes remain on whether Spurs can successfully finalise the deal and reinforce their squad during the January transfer window.
