Ange Postecoglou needs a new centre-back in January with Micky van de Ven out since November with a hamstring injury. Number one defender Cristian Romero also had the same problem and needed a month to recover. Postecoglou was forced to use players like Ben Davies and Emerson Royal as central defenders, while Eric Dier was not favored.
Accordingly, Tottenham competed with Man United to win Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice. The Red Devils have been heavily linked with Todibo in recent months, especially as their co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is also the owner of Nice.
On Thursday, sources confirmed to TEAMtalk that Spurs are ready to make a move for the Frenchman. Now Postecoglou’s team even has reached an agreement with Nice. Many sources say that the French team keeps Todibo’s valuation from 43-52 million pounds. Nice knows Todibo’s importance, but they also understand that January is a good time for them to cash in on the sale of the 23-year-old player.
