Roma eyeing Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Tobido

AS Roma are eyeing Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Tobido.

Mundo Deportivo says Roma want to take the French youngster on-loan next season.

Tobido joined Barca from Toulouse in January, but has hardly featured for the first team.

Roma are keen to take him off Barca's hands, viewing Tobido as a potential replacement for Kostas Manolas.

Tobido's situation at Barca is set to become further complicated with the expected arrival of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer.
