Liverpool and Wolves are in a race to land a talented teenage defender, while Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to sell a young star, according to Friday’s European papers.
LIVERPOOL IN BATTLE FOR TOULOUSE STARLET
Liverpool are set to battle fellow Premier League side Wolves for Toulouse youngster Jean-Clair Todibo, a report claims.
That is according to La Depeche, who state that Todibo is weighing up his future amid reported interest from a number of Europe’s top clubs.
Lyon and RB Leipzig are also believed to be monitoring the teenager, who was recently turfed out of Toulouse’s first team for delaying the signing of a professional deal.
“Toulouse offered him his first professional contract with a salary that is unprecedented in the history of the club,” the club stated.
“The player has indicated that he is still not sure about the matter and his situation. Today, Toulouse have decided to remove Jean-Clair Todibo from the 1st team.”
Todido will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season should his current club fail to agree with him on a new deal.
REAL MADRID NAME PRICE FOR PREM-LINKED STAR
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has decided that he will not stand in the way of allowing Marco Asensio to leave should the right offer arrive, a report claims.
According to Don Balon, the recent performances from Asensio have convinced Perez that he is ‘not a star’.
