Earlier this week, Bild reported that Bayern Munich could sell Corentin Tolisso this summer to raise funds for incomings. The German outlet named Juventus, West Ham United, Arsenal, and Manchester United among the clubs interested in the midfielder.

Now, the French media have picked up the story. L’Equipe (via GFFN) report that Julian Nagelsmann has made it clear Tolisso’s game time will be limited this season, and the Bayern board have decided to try and sell the player as quickly as possible.

To push that through, they’d be willing to accept a bid as low as €10m. L’Equipe report the same four clubs listed above as have an interest in Tolisso.

As for the player, he doesn’t want to have another season like the last, where he struggled to get on the pitch consistently. But he is also happy to see out his contract and leave for free next summer if he doesn’t get the right offers.

All the way back in 2016, Tolisso told the media he dreams of playing for clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Arsenal. Whether that’s still a dream of his given Arsenal’s struggles in the last five years remains to be seen.

Tolisso is certainly a talented player, though he does have a terrible injury record. At 27, it’s unlikely to improve much as he gets older, but if he could stay fit he’d have something to offer. For just €10m, it might be a gamble Arsenal are willing to take, but we’ll see.
