Corentin Tolisso completes €37m Bayern Munich move logo 14-06-2017

Bayern Munich have announced that they have signed France international midfielder Corentin Tolisso from Olympique Lyonnais.

The 22-year-old midfielder has arrived at the Allianz Arena for a fee of €37 million and has agreed upon a five-year contract with the Bundesliga champions, who saw off reported competition from Chelsea for the midfielder.

Although Tolisso’s primary position has been in the centre of the field for OL, he has proven to be an exceptionally versatile presence since breaking into the first team in 2013. He has played in a myriad of positions, from right-back through to playmaker and even as a false nine for periods this term.

By moving to Munich he has put to an end a 10-year long association with Lyon, who he joined aged nine in 2007 having been born 30 miles from the city.

He has played 160 times for OL, scoring 29 times, including 14 in the last season, and made his international debut for France against Spain in March, despite also being eligible to represent Togo, where his father was born.

Tolisso follows Sebastian Rudy, Niklas Sule and Serge Gnabry as new additions to Carlo Ancelotti's ranks this summer, with the Italian still keen on countryman Marco Verratti of Paris Saint-Germain.
