West Ham United reportedly want to sign Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo this summer.

However, Area Napoli claim that West Ham face strong competition from Napoli, Paris Saint-Germain, Newcastle, and Aston Villa for the 23-year-old signature in the summer transfer window.

The East London outfit have been linked with a move to sign Todibo already this summer. That’s no surprise with Hammers boss David Moyes on the look-out for a top-class centre-back.

However, the Scot won’t have it all his own way if he does indeed try to sign the Nice star…

Area Napoli claim that the Hammers want to sign the former Barcelona man.

However, we could face competition from Newcastle, Villa, Napoli and PSG for his signature. It clearly won’t be easy for West Ham to bring Todibo to East London will it.

If there is any chance whatsoever of making this happen though, Moyes should be all over it.

The Frenchman is very strong in the air, really quick along the ground and tenacious in the tackle.

In 34 Ligue 1 outings for Nice last season, Tobido averaged 2.2 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 3.1 clearances per game (Who Scored).

Jean-Clair Todibo would be a fantastic long-term replacement for Angelo Ogbonna at West Ham.

However, £43 million does seem to be a little steep. If we could pick him up for closer to £25-30 million, then it’s definitely a deal that the Hammers should be pursuing.
