West Ham United considering fresh bid to sign Jean-Clair Todibo

West Ham United could soon present a new bid to sign 24-year-old OGC Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo, a target for Manchester United.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Jean-Clair Todibo is the subject of interest from West Ham United. The 24-year-old OGC Nice defender has also been a target for Manchester United heading into the summer transfer window. The Hammers are preparing an improved offer to sign the centre-back after the Ligue 1 club rejected the opening bid worth £25.4 million.

Jean-Clair Todibo and his OGC Nice journey

Jean-Clair Todibo has established himself as one of the best defenders in Ligue 1 since joining OGC Nice from Barcelona. The Frenchman was struggling to find a stable footing in his career after his spell with Barcelona crashed and burned. He embarked on three loan spells away from the Catalan outfit before completing a permanent transfer to OGC Nice in July 2021.

The 24-year-old has gone from strength to strength in the last three years, turning out 136 times thus far for OGC Nice while chipping in with two goals and three assists. Todibo’s exploits for Nice have helped him break into his national team. Meanwhile, the player’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several well-known clubs across Europe.

A move to the Premier League is the likeliest outcome of a battle for Jean-Clair Todibo’s services, with West Ham United recently joining the race to sign him. In addition, the French international has been a target for Manchester United, although they have encountered a roadblock in the chase.

Will Todibo move to the Premier League?

Manchester United’s interest in Jean-Clair Todibo is understandable. The Red Devils have been scouring the market for a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window after losing Raphael Varane as a free agent. And Manchester United will explore legal avenues to land the 24-year-old Frenchman after FIFA rules prohibited him from moving to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, West Ham United recently failed with a bid worth £25.4 million to sign the French international. The Hammers are keen on signing a centre-back this summer after losing Angelo Ogbonna. In addition, Nayef Aguerd faces an uncertain future at the London Stadium. So, Todibo is a viable target, with West Ham considering an improved bid to secure his services.

West Ham’s new offer might take the East London club close to securing Jean-Clair Todibo’s signature in the summer transfer window. It will be interesting to see if the improved bid seals the deal for the OGC Nice defender.
