If Arsenal fail to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League then we can expect more than a few big names to leave the club this summer.
The gunner supporters will be delighted to know that record signing Mesut Ozil has claimed that he is happy at Arsenal (Mirror).
Manager Arsene Wenger’s future is still up in the air. No matter what happens with him, the North Londoners must reinforce their squad in the summer transfer window by signing top quality players.
According to reports (Football London via L’Equipe), Arsenal are interested in signing French international and Lyon star Corentin Tolisso, who is rated around 30 million pounds ($37million).
The 22-year-old star has recently claimed that he would love to play for Arsenal in the Premier League, which is the most competitive league in the world. He stated:
“Many clubs make me dream like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and England with teams like Arsenal.”
“I like the Premier League and I think I am well suited to it. It is the league that offers the most competition, it is the most open, the most hard-fought and the most spectacular.”
The Les Bleus star is a versatile talent, who can play anywhere in the midfield. Moreover, Lyon have also utilized him as a center forward this season.
He mainly plays as a creative central midfielder and has what it takes to replace veteran Spanish star Santi Cazorla, who has mainly been injury prone in the past two seasons.
In the current campaign, Tolisso has featured in 37 games for the Ligue 1 side and directly contributed in 16 goals (11 goals and 5 assists).
