Report: West Ham interested in £8.5m-rated Tolisso
West Ham United are reportedly interested in Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
What’s the story?
According to Bild, the German champions don’t want to sell the ace for under €10m (£8.5m) this summer. After returning from his holidays to quarantine in France, the 27-year-old is due back in training on Tuesday.
Since moving to Munich from Lyon for €41.5m (£35.2m) in 2017, the midfielder has struggled. Injuries and lack of consistency have limited the ace to just 96 appearances in four years.
As a result, he is up for transfer with just a year left on his current contract. David Moyes’ side are keen, alongside Italian giants Juventus.
West Ham would seal great player in Tolisso
It probably goes without saying, but West Ham would secure a massive coup with the signing of Tolisso.
The ace’s experience at high-level football, both across leagues and in European competition, make him a quality player.
His time with Bayern has been full to the brim with trophies, with the ace lifting eight major honours.
But he also possesses massive amounts of quality. His composure on the ball would make him a useful asset for Moyes in the attacking half of the pitch.
Meanwhile, West Ham really do have a lack of central midfield options. Aside from starters Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice, Mark Noble is the only senior option on the bench.
Adding some depth is much-needed as the Hammers go into battle in the Europa League next season.
