Barcelona are reportedly keen on Lyon midfielder, Corentin Tolisso, but the 22-year-old appears to be more excited by a potential move to Arsenal.
Chelsea have also been linked with the midfielder
- Tolisso has scored 6 Ligue 1 goals this season
- The France international has 3 years left on his Lyon contract
According to Sport, the France international has been linked with the Catalan giants recently with it even being suggested that compatriot, Samuel Umtiti, is helping orchestrate the move by convincing him to sign.
However, back in October, Tolisso actually admitted to France Football that he was far more excited by the idea of signing for a few other teams, including Arsenal, saying, “Many clubs make me dream like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and England with teams like Arsenal.
“I like the Premier League and I think I am well suited to it. It is the league that offers the most competition, it is the most open, the most hard-fought and the most spectacular.”
Recently, the versatile midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants, Juventus. However, he’s denied agreeing a deal with them at this point.
“I have not signed anything with Juventus,” he told L’Equipe [via Goal].
“I have a contract with Lyon until 2020, so that should answer all questions about whether I am still here next season.”
