Report: PSG Contact Entourage of Barcelona Defender

Paris Saint-Germain continue to be rumored to acquire a center-back for depth, and they are now scouting one La Liga defender in particular.

According to Le10Sport, PSG sporting director, Leonardo, has contacted the agent of Barcelona center-back Jean-Clair Todibo. No concrete offer has been made, nor is Leonardo deep in negotiations for the Frenchman, but club officials see Todibo as one whom they are interested in acquiring.

Todibo is coming off of a half-season loan stint with FC Schalke 04. Injuries hampered his ability to make any kind of a grand influence while with the German club; he made a total of 10 appearances in all competitions, and thus club officials decided to decline the buy option offered by the Catalan club. Overall, the 20-year-old has amounted for 25 appearances in first-team football with three different teams, including 10 with Ligue 1 side Toulouse.

At the moment, PSG is not alone in its interest for the 6’3” Todibo. Teams such as Wolverhampton showed relative interest in a possible deal last month.

With the pending departure of Thiago Silva, Leonardo will surely continue to be in the mix for promising defenders like Todibo along with experienced veterans. The team does not want to be in a situation where depth concerns within its backline become a significant issue.
