Arsenal have more than a few versatile midfielders in their squad in the form of Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny, Francis Coquelin and injured Santi Cazorla.
Still, Wenger is keen on hiring the services of another versatile midfielder in the form of Lyon star Corentin Tolisso.
Back in March, Corentin claimed that he dreams of palying for clubs like Arsenal, Real Madrid and Barcelona (Football London via L’Equipe).
“Many clubs make me dream like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and England with teams like Arsenal.”
Now, according to Mirror, the 22-year-old French international is ready to quit the Ligue 1 side in the summer transfer window and Arsene is ready to secure his signature for Arsenal.
Tolisso is naturally a central midfielder but he can effectively play as an attacking midfielder as well. This season, the Les Bleus star has been in fantastic form for Lyon and deserved earned a place in the senior national side in March.
In 46 league games (all competitions), Corentin has directly contributed in no fewer than 20 goals (14 goals and 6 assists).
Cazorla has been brilliant for Arsenal when fit, however, the dilemma is that he has mainly been injury prone in the past two seasons and Wenger needs to replace him. In your opinion, is Tolisso good enough to replace the Spaniard?
