Arsenal handed major boost in pursuit of French midfielder

Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Lyon Midfielder, Corentin Tolisso. The midfielder has been impressing for the French club since he made his debut a couple of seasons ago.

A host of European clubs are after his signature, however the report claims that Arsenal and Barcelona are the teams with the best chance of signing him.

The France international has however given a clear indication about where he will move to, if he does move away from Lyon.

The midfielder claims he has dreams of playing in the top five European leagues, but he was more attracted to The Italian and English league.

Arsenal want to add Tolisso to their squad, as they prepare to lose most of their stars this season. They have a host of players whose deals will expire after next season, and the club has shown little willingness to offer them new deals.

Arsenal hope that Wenger’s French connection will help them get the player ahead of Barcelona.
