Arsenal and Barcelona in race to sign highly talented French youngster

Barcelona have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso, according to the latest transfer rumours.

The 22 year has admitted in the past that his dream is to play for Barcelona or Arsenal, and believes he is well suited to thrive in the premier league.

Spanish sources are claiming that Barcelona have now entered the race and want to secure the player’s signature when the transfer window opens.

Arsenal are also keen on the French youngster and Wenger will be hoping he can use his French connections to lure the player to the Emirates.

The imminent departure of Mesut Ozil in the summer would make room for reinforcement in the midfield of the Gunners.

Tolisso is a versatile player and could play at right back, this would give Arsenal a credible option in that position. They have played Gabriel in that position sometimes when they are short of options, but the Brazilian is a better player when he plays in his preferred centre back position.

There was speculations that Tolisso had agreed to sign for Juventus at the end of the season, but the player has dismissed that as mere rumours. © 2017 Frontier Theme
