Per a report from Calciomercato, Bayern Munich and Juventus are in contact over a potential deal for French midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

Tolisso, who is currently out of commission with a tendon tear in his left thigh, has been rumored to be leaving Bayern Munich this summer, but there have not been many concrete reports as to where he might be headed.

Now it appears that the 26-year-old might have a legitimate suitor in Juventus:

Juve and Bayern Munich are in contact. There is a player leaving Bayern who is particularly interesting to Juventus: it is Corentin Tolisso, who had been stolen from Juve in 2017. Excellent relations between the clubs and the player has a desire for redemption.

Tolisso is not expected to be back in action until mid-May, which will not leave him a lot of time to showcase himself for potential suitors. Any club that wants to buy Tolisso is going to have to pull the trigger based on his potential and memories of what he was before the string of injuries that he has battled over the past two-and-a-half seasons.
