One of Liverpool’s best central defenders Joe Gomez has been injured and with his absence set to be a major blow for the Reds, there is a need to find a replacement for him.

However, the Reds have reportedly decided to step up a bid for long-term target and Toulouse defender Jean-Clair Todibo, according to a report by The Express.

Though he is 18 years of age, he has been tipped to be one of the most promising defenders in Europe with the impressive performances he has shown and most importantly, making a first-team appearance for his side.

He has got the ability to pair with former Southampton central defender Virgil Van Dijk according to rating by pundits and that is why the Merseyside club have looked his direction.

However, Liverpool have got Joel Matip who started in their last game and Dejan Lovren to fill the game but there are insinuations that the German manager favours Jean-Clair Todibo ahead of the duo.

Jean-Clair Todibo has scored a goal with the 10 games under his belt this season and has been impressive as well.

With the winter transfer window set to reopen in coming weeks, Liverpool will hope to land the young lad so as to continue their dominance for a title win this season.
