French international defender Jean-Clair Todibo has been linked with a move away from OGC Nice in recent weeks.
A report from Football Insider claims that Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are both keen on signing the defender but the Red Devils are currently in pole position despite increased interest from the north London club.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can step up their pursuit and sign the player in the coming weeks.
Todibo has made a name for himself in the French league and he has established himself as a key player for Nice. The opportunity to join big clubs like Tottenham and Manchester United can be an attractive option and it remains to be seen what the player decides.
Both Premier League clubs have the financial muscle to get the deal done and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
Tottenham have Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven as the only reliable central defenders at the club right now and they need more depth in that position. The 23-year-old French international could prove to be an excellent addition and he has the quality to succeed in the Premier League as well.
He will want to establish himself as a key player for his country in the coming seasons and performing at a high level in the Premier League will only boost his chances of starting regularly for the French national team.
The defender is reportedly valued at £40 million and he could prove to be a quality acquisition at that price.
