Report: Wolves join Everton in hunt for Barcelona man Jean-Clair Todibo

According to a fresh report from Mundo Deportivo, Wolves have now joined Everton in the race to land Barcelona defender, Jean-Clair Todibo.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan in the Bundesliga with Schalke 04, where he has made eight appearances.

However, a number of parties are said to be keen on taking Todibo off Barca’s hands once again this summer, with it well-known that the Catalan giants need to sell a number of players.

The young defender, who has played for the French under-20s, is highly thought of around Europe after an impressive spell with Toulouse led Barcelona to snap him up for more or less nothing in 2019.

Schalke are thought to have paid a loan fee of just over £1m for Todibo in January of this year. However, thanks to the global situation, Todibo has had little time to really settle into life in Germany.

Everton have been credited with an interest in Todibo already. Indeed, the Sun claimed just last month that a £20m bid was being weighed up by the Toffees.

Clubs need to be careful with their spending this summer so £20m for a player who’s not really had much chance to impress at the very top level seems a big amount.

Of course, Todibo is only 20 so could well justify a tag of around that figure. Furthermore, he has been compared to French legend Marcel Desailly. German publication, Bundesliga.com, making that claim when he joined Schalke.

Wolves and Everton are both clubs seemingly on the up, though. If they feel Todibo is a young talent worth investing in, then it could work out. Regardless of that, though, both clubs need to be sure of their decision.
