Toulouse's other option is to sell Todibo in January for a cut-price figure rather than lose him for nothing after June.
Sport Witness referred to an earlier report from La Depeche, which said Todibo is still yet to sign the contract he's been offered by Toulouse, which would be his first professional deal.
However, it hasn't gone down well at the Stadium Municipal that the teenager has held off so long, and Todibo has since been demoted as a result, per Goal's Robin Bairner:
The youngster was promoted to Toulouse's first team earlier this year as a replacement for Issa Diop, who completed a move to West Ham United in the summer and is now impressing in the Premier League.
There's a chance Todibo has seen the quick progress of his French compatriot and has backed himself to complete a similar move away from the Ligue 1 outfit in the near future.
Liverpool have a strong centre-back corps as things stand. They made Virgil van Dijk the most expensive defender in the world when he joined for £75 million in January, while Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are other experienced heads in Jurgen Klopp's squad.
Joe Gomez, 21, has also excelled this term, although Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher highlighted Van Dijk as their real gem:

Virgil van Dijk one of the best players in the league? Darren Fletcher has no doubt. 👊 He also explains how the @LFC centre-back could have ended up at @WBA...👀 Watch #MNF with @Carra23 and Darren Flecher live on Sky Sports Premier League now! https://t.co/Pu496D1spu https://t.co/GwyVZ31SDL
It's difficult to see where a young talent like Todibo fits in among that competition, especially if it is Diop's trajectory he's hoping to replicate at his next club.
The situation is similar in Turin, although Juventus have more pressing need to refresh their squad. Giorgio Chiellini, 34, and Leonardo Bonucci, 31, are the centre-backs of choice, which often leaves Medhi Benatia, 31, and Daniele Rugani, 24, fighting for minutes.
What's more, there's the ageing figure of 37-year-old Andrea Barzagli, whose deal expires in June, although sports writer David Amoyal joked he's got a lot of life left in his playing days yet:
Todibo must first reclaim his place in Toulouse's plans if he's to capitalise on the reported interest from Liverpool and Juventus, though, and he could prove to be of major value if allowed to move for free next summer.
