According to reports in L’Equipe and Sport Bild, Bayern Munich are in hot pursuit of Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso for a transfer fee of around €40 million.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Juventus or Manchester City are also thought to covet Tolisso, who scored 14 goals in 47 games across all competitions for Lyon last season. Tolisso is also a French U21 international player.

With Xabi Alonso’s departure, could fill the long-range, goal-scoring void in midfield.
