With the European Championships coming up this summer, the time has come for speculation on who will be called up to their national teams.

For Bayern Munich players from France, the result is a bit of a mixed bag per RMC Sport.

The French publication expects Bayern Munich defenders Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard to be on Didier Deschamps’ roster. In addition, winger Kingsley Coman also appears to be a shoo-in for a spot on the offensive flank.

The big question is surrounding oft-injured, but highly-talented midfielder Corentin Tolisso. Per RMC Sport, Tolisso will likely be competing with Olympique Lyon’s Houssem Aouar and the Stade Rennais duo Eduardo Camavinga and Steven Nzonzi (on loan from AS Roma). Camavinga, of course, has been closely linked to Bayern Munich in the transfer market, but has a price tag that looks to be far out-of-line with what Bayern Munich is able to spend this summer.

As for Tolisso, the midfielder could actually benefit from a summer off where he can just focus on himself, but the competitor in him undoubtedly will want to be on the roster.

Not so surprisingly, struggling midfielder Michaël Cuisance and little-used right-back Bouna Sarr do not appear to be close to the “watch list.”
