Jean-Clair Todibo is reportedly close to sealing a Barcelona exit and looks to be heading to Premier League side Fulham,

According to Mundo Deportivo, the defender missed training on Saturday, a surprise given Clement Lenglet is suspended for Sunday’s Sevilla clash.

However, Barca don’t want to risk him getting injured in the final days of the transfer window and reckon a move to the newly-promoted Premier League side is close.

Fulham are said to have offered €18 million for Todibo which Barcelona would be happy to accept for the 20-year-old.

Other reports have suggested that the Cottagers still have a bit of work to do to convince Todibo to join Scott Parker’s side.

If Todibo does go before Monday’s deadline then it looks as though Barcelona could then go back in for Eric Garcia.

Pep Guardiola said on Friday he knows Garcia wants to head back to Barcelona, while Ronald Koeman also admitted the club want him in his press conference on Saturday.
