According to reports from Spanish media outlet Sport, three Premier League clubs – Everton, Manchester United, and Southampton – are all interested in signing Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona.

There have been interest from Italian clubs for the youngster as well with Calciomercato reporting that the player had been in talks regarding a move to Milan.

The 19-year-old, who only cost the Blaugrana €2m, has only been involved in four La Liga matches since joining the club in January this year.

He has been a peripheral figure since moving to the Nou Camp, and he is now demanding more first-team football. The centre-back, who can also play as a defensive midfielder, looks set to leave on loan or permanently in January.

According to reports from El Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are hopeful that they can secure €25m (£21m) by selling the highly-talented defender.

Barcelona are open to selling the young French defender but the Catalan giants want to agree a clause that would allow them to potentially re-sign him in the next couple of years.

Carlo Ancelotti, the new Everton boss, will be looking to sign a new defender in January, and Todibo would be a smart signing for the club.
