Official: Bayern Munich signs Tolisso from Lyon

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Corentin Tolisso from Olympique Lyonnais for €37 million.

The 22 year old has reportedly agreed a five year deal , snubbing interest from English champions Chelsea in favor of a move to the Allianz Arena, consequently ending a decade long association with the club he joined when he was nine years old.

The Frenchman becomes Die Rothen’s fourth signing of the summer, after Sebastian Rudy, Niklas Sule and Serge Gnabry.

Tolisso played 47 games for Lyon last season scoring 14 goals and assisting 7. A wonderfully versatile player, he is predominantly a central midfielder but is equally adept at right back, as an attacking midfielder or as a false nine, and is an immaculate passer of the ball with great vision who rarely gives the ball away.

He has been capped once by Le Bleus, making his international debut against Spain in March 2017, and his also eligible to represent Togo, which happens to be his father’s country of birth.
