Jean-Clair Todibo is interested in joining Juventus, sparking a potential transfer. The French centre-back has caught the eye of the Italian giants, who are keen to bolster their defensive options. Todibo’s impressive performances at OGC Nice have made him a hot prospect in the transfer market.

  • Jean-Clair Todibo is keen on a move to Juventus.
  • Juventus proposed a loan deal with a mandatory buy clause for Todibo.
  • Nice rejected a €35m bid from West Ham for Todibo.

Jean-Clair Todibo’s Juventus Ambitions

Jean-Clair Todibo, the 24-year-old French centre-back, is keen on a move to Juventus. Currently playing for OGC Nice, Todibo has impressed with his defensive skills and towering presence at 1.90 m. His contract with Nice runs until 2027, and his market value is estimated at €35.00m as of June 3, 2024.

Juventus has shown significant interest in Todibo, proposing a loan deal with a mandatory buy clause. However, Nice has already turned down a €35m bid from West Ham, indicating their high valuation of the player. Todibo’s previous career includes stints at Toulouse FC, FC Barcelona, Schalke 04 (loan), and Benfica (loan), before settling at Nice in 2021 for €8.5m.

Dean Huijsen’s Departure and Its Financial Implications

Dean Huijsen, a 19-year-old centre-back from Amsterdam, Netherlands, is poised to leave Juventus. Standing at 1.97 m, Huijsen has a contract with the club until 2028 and a market value of €10.00m as of June 5, 2024. His youth career spanned Costa Unida CF and Málaga CF before joining Juventus in 2021. He has played for Juventus II and recently spent time on loan at AS Roma.

Huijsen’s potential departure could provide Juventus with financial relief, aiding their pursuit of new signings. His transfer history includes an undisclosed fee move from Málaga to Juventus and a loan to AS Roma for the 2023-2024 season.

Juventus and OGC Nice: Transfer Market Dynamics

Juventus has been active in the transfer market, securing signings like Douglas Luiz and Michele Di Gregorio. These moves align with their strategy to rejuvenate the squad and maintain competitiveness in Serie A and European competitions. Additionally, they are eyeing versatile Dutch midfielder Teun Koopmeiners from Atalanta BC, valued at €50 million.

OGC Nice, on the other hand, has been firm in their stance regarding Todibo, rejecting substantial offers to keep their defensive stalwart. The club’s recent transfer activities reflect their ambition to compete at higher levels without losing key players.
