Bayern Munich chief issues Corentin Tolisso update amid Arsenal and Tottenham transfer links

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has poured cold water on rumours linking Corentin Tolisso with a move to north London.

The midfielder has been linked with both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal at various points this summer.

Bayern were claimed in June to be readying an offer that would see Tolisso go to Spurs with Tanguy Ndombele heading in the other direction.

Arsenal, meanwhile, were linked to the French World Cup winner in May.

Yet following Bayern’s Champions League win, Rummenigge shot down talk of the 26-year-old departing the Bundesliga champions this summer.

“Tolisso? He’s staying. He’s happy and we want to keep him,” Rummenigge said to Tuttosport.

With Thiago Alcantara set to leave Bayern this summer due to only having a year left on his contract and no desire to renew, the European champions would be left short in midfield if they were to also let Tolisso leave.

The French international joined from Lyon in 2017 but has so far struggled for regular football at Bayern.

He moved to Bayern for £40m but suffered from persistent injuries, starting just 10 games last season.

Tolisso also played just four minutes in Bayern’s Champions League final win over PSG.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Spanish international Thiago, yet Liverpool are the favourites for his signature.

Mikel Arteta is said to have contacted Thiago over a potential move to the Emirates, with the former Barcelona midfielder keen for a new challenge.
