In need of a centre-back this transfer window, French Ligue 1 side Rennes have looked at a number of options.
Among those was Mohamed Salisu, who ended up at Southampton, and their search hassince evolved to targeting Jean-Clair Todibo at Barcelona.
However, if that doesn’t pan out, they are understtod to have an alternative plan involving Norwich City’s Ben Godfrey.
Norwich's young central defender was one of the stand out performers for the club in their disappointing Premier League season which ulyimately saw them relegated at the end of it, attracting interest along the way, and a move to France could become an option.
This is according to French Website Foot Mercato, who explain Florian Maurice, the club’s technical director, has been following Godfrey for ‘a long time’ and is now reportedly ‘keeping an eye’ on him.
Unfortunately, the player’s profile and status in England means that his name ‘has been ticked by most big European clubs’, which has increased his price, making him ‘very expensive’ for a club of Rennes’ status.
