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?

Bonaroca :- I think that any transfer for new players should be suspended until the the Board will agree that Mr Wenger will be confirmed as manager for the coming season. Personally as an Arsenal Supporter since 1946 when Arsenal were in the relegation zone and that great player Joe Mercer and a couple of others revivded the Arsenal side and never had any trouble if I am not mistaken since.Even if Arsenal win even the FA Cup which I hope they will, as an 85 year old I would advise Mr Weger to resign so that a young new Manager coming in,would build his team on selected the most 3/4 top foreigners players but mainly by as
talented GBR players who were in the past the basis of the great Arsenal team..
One has to remember that in the 30’s EIGHT Arsenal players represented Britain in the famous match against Italy,so why not now with an improved coaching system at club levels which Arsenal excel in, are not capable
to find that talent, of course they have ?????. The least I say the better.
Piers Morgan, I have loved your Arsenal for all those years, but I still I think that with Brexit Arsenal with a
top young ambitious Manager with mainly GBR players will achieve what many paying supporters a the
Emirates would like to see it happening in the future. .
I am flabbergasted at the amount of good academy young exciting players we have yet very very few seem to make it to the senior team. Is there something wrong with the arsenal academy. Our senior team ! First team have let us down once again , it doesn’t matter about Sundays premier league result. I personally think that arsene should be more ruthless with our first team players that cannot perform consistently. Give the Chris willocks, Jeff Adelaide Reid’s, and Kristen bieleks etc a chance. They deserve it Sean
