Fussball Transfers in Germany report that Tolisso can leave Bayern this summer amid Arsenal interest. The player prefers a move to the Premier League, and Manchester United showed interest in January, but Hansi Flick vetoed a sale at the time.

With United going on to sign Bruno Fernandes, their interest isn’t quite as strong anymore, though they aren’t out of the race completely. Meanwhile, Arsenal are also coming back in for the player the media linked them to as long ago as 2016.

Reports last month suggested the two English clubs would compete for the 25-year-old. There’s various interest from abroad as well, but Tolisso’s own desires are pushing the Premier League options to the forefront.

Before the football shutdown, Tolisso made 24 appearances this season, scoring three and assisting five goals. However, he only made seven league starts, and clearly isn’t quite meeting expectations in Munich.

Arsenal fans might get a chance to watch the midfielder in action before long. The Bundesliga is back from next weekend, with Bayern facing Union Berlin on Sunday 17th May at 17:00.
