Everton are close to completing a deal for Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo for €20m plus add-ons, with negotiations at an advanced stage, according to Sport.

Barca want a buy-back clause in the deal but it seems unlikely as Everton are against any buy-back option.

The French centre-back is currently on loan to Schalke and has impressed for the Bundesliga outfit since making the move in January.
