Many Arsenal fans have voiced their excitement after the club were linked with a move for Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso.
The Gunners are tracking the France international ahead of a possible move, according to Soccer Link (via AfcSource). The talk is backed up by German publication Bild, who are claiming that the Bavarian giants want to sell the central midfielder, with the player reportedly unhappy over his role at the club.
One fan asked Alexandre Lacazette to help lure the forward to the Emirates Stadium, having played with the 25-year-old at Lyon, whilst another described the Bayern Munich player as a ‘solid baller’.
Agent Laca do your thing, who the hell is Ndombele in a world of Tolisso’s https://t.co/zIWUJWRP03

Tolisso has endured a tough time with the European giants, having made 19 appearances across all competitions (via Transfermarkt). In comparison to Arsenal’s midfield options, he has a passing accuracy of over 89% in the German top-flight, more than Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi average in the Premier League this campaign.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful, with one feeling that he is an ideal replacement for ex-Gunners midfielder Aaron Ramsey:
Perfect Ramsey replacement
