Manchester United to battle Arsenal for Corentin Tolisso
According to Foot Mercato (h/t Daily Mail), Manchester United are keen to beat off competition from Arsenal for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
The French World Cup-winning midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena under Hansi Flick. Tolisso has made just 12 appearances under Flick, playing the whole 90 minutes just twice.
He is keen on a move away with both Arsenal and us looking to take advantage of the situation (h/t Daily Mail).
Tolisso joined the Bavarian giants in 2017. He enjoyed a fruitful first season before injuring his cruciate ligament in 2018. He missed the best part of the next six and a half months and has since fallen down the pecking order (h/t Transfermarkt).
His situation has also garnered attention from European giants such as Juventus, Atletico Madrid, and Napoli.
A player of considerable quality, he will be a solid addition to the United midfield.
United already considerably strengthened the middle of the park with the signing of Bruno Fernandes in January. With Paul Pogba linked with a move away, we could have to sign a replacement in the summer (h/t The Telegraph).
