Chelsea considering move for Nice defender

Chelsea are considering making a move in the January window for Nice defender Jean-Clair Toribo.

The 24 year old French international is already a target for several Premier League clubs, with Manchester United and particularly Tottenham interested in him.

But Chelsea have now emerged as serious contenders for his signature, and have already begun the process of finding out if there is a deal to be made for him.

Despite the ₤1 billion spent by the club in the past three transfer windows, Mauricio Pochettino still believes that his squad remains unbalanced, and there gaps that need to be filled, especially in the spine.

One of the areas that needs strengthening is at centre-back, especially given the doubts over the future of 39 year old Thiago Silva, and Todibo is considered by some as the ideal replacement.
