Jean-Clair Todibo is once again being considered by Everton as they search for central-defensive reinforcements.
The 20-year-old emerged as a potential target for the Blues earlier this year when they came very close to signing Gabriel before the latter ended up at Arsenal.
Speculation on Todibo went quiet, especially when Everton shifted their attention to Fikayo Tomori but with interest in the Chelsea man waning as his place at Stamford Bridge looks more assured, Todibo is back under consideration.
Paul Joyce of The Times says the Frenchman is on Marcel Brands’s shortlist but there are suggestions elsewhere that the fee being quoted by Barcelona is too high.
Ideally, Everton are looking at loan options and have also been linked with Jérôme Onguene of Salzburg by Telefoot.

Loan with option to buy would make sense. This kid has loads of potential
This guy was on loan at Schalke from last January. I stand to be corrected but I don’t think Schalke won a game with him at centre back. Could be that he was their star player.
Frank – Schalke have been woeful for a while. It wasn’t down to Todibo. He’s got absolutely huge potential. With Barca in rebuilding mode I’m a bit surprised they’re letting him go.
Loan with option to buy would be good.
Improveme the first team to improve the squad. Pace at the back is a must.
Robert, U Turn here after seeing him on the link on the other thread. I agree, he has bags of natural ability. I imagine he will cause a few flutters a la Stones v Tottenham and I prefer centre backs to have socks and shin pads firmly in place just in case a crunching tackle is required.
