Barcelona have long been wanting to offload Jean-Clair Todibo, but the centre-back is still at the Camp Nou after returning from his loan spell at Schalke.
Everton are one of the Premier League clubs frequently linked with the defender, and it’s claimed the Toffees still maintain an interest in him.
Mundo Deportivo journalist Miguel Rico provides a short update on the 20-year-old’s case in today’s edition of the newspaper, and the title reads, ‘Todibo: Rennes or Everton?’.
Within the report, it’s stated the La Liga side are working on ‘two specific fronts’, which is interest of the French club, and that of ‘friends’ at Everton.
Barca and the Merseyside club share a good relationship after the likes of Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and André Gomes swapped the Camp Nou for Goodsion Park in the past few years.
Ronald Koeman’s side value the France U20 international around €15m, and Rico states the price quoted by Barca ‘seems a lot’ for both Rennes and Everton.
Meanwhile, Sport reported on Tuesday that Fulham have made a bid of €18m plus €5m in bonuses to sign Todibo, which feels optimistic to say the least.
