Arsenal are reportedly interested in luring Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso to The Emirates this summer but face enormous competition from the likes of Manchester United – and Gunners fans have reacted on Twitter.
French outlet Foot Mercato claim Bayern are willing to let go of the 25-year-old midfielder, with Arsenal and Manchester United named as potential suitors for the 21-time France international.
However, the two Premier League sides are not the only clubs interested in signing the former Lyon ace – who played alongside Alexandre Lacazette at the French club. Indeed, Juventus, Napoli and Atletico Madrid are also linked.
Tolisso joined Bayern for £36million in the summer of 2017 under Carlo Ancelotti and started in stunning form, scoring 10 and creating seven in his first season. But an anterior cruciate ligament injury limited him to just four outings in 2018-19.
This season, he has played 24 times, but he is clearly not as confident as he was in his first season at Bayern. That has seen the German champions decide to part company with Tolisso, a player that has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past.
Arsenal supporters reacted on Twitter to the news that their club could land Tolisso this summer as per reports, and the majority of fans are desperate to see Tolisso combine with Lacazette again: “Bring the French connection back”.
Tolisso is quality. Anyone saying no to him should get their head checked
