The Germans are reportedly targeting his replacement in Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking midfielder Kai Havertz, and they know that they have to make room for the German starlet.
Corentin Tolisso joined Bayern Munich from Lyon in 2017 and was a key member of the Bavarian’s side that campaign, however, he struggled with injuries in his second season and has struggled to get into the starting line-up this season.
The Germans have used him just 10 times this campaign and they feel this might just be the time to cash in on him, according to German outlet Bild as reported in the Sun.
The Gunners will probably be in the market for a new creative midfielder next summer as they look to transfer on from Mesut Ozil.
Even if Mesut Ozil doesn’t leave, Mikel Arteta is expected to bring in new faces that would help him achieve his goals with the team.
Corentin Tolisso can be one of the best midfielders in the world on his day and his plays for the French team as they won the last World Cup also shows how skilled he is.
According to the same report, Arsenal is not the only team interested in his signature. Man Utd is said to have failed with a loan offer for him last month before they signed Bruno Fernandes. Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also interested in joining him.
Corentin Tolisso is just 25 but has immense experience and is a very talented individual. He would be a top-notch signing and a bit of a coup if the Gunners managed to get him to pen to paper. This is one worth keeping an eye on.
