German newspaper Bild have claimed that Bayern Munich are reportedly willing to sell midfielder Corentin Tolisso less than two years after the France international made public his desire of making a move to Anfield.
Tolisso, 25, joined the Bundesliga serial winners for a fee of £38m (Guardian) in 2016 which was a then-club-record move for Bayern. The Frenchman was the German outfit’s record-signing until Lucas Hernandez joined from Atletico Madrid last season.
Bild have claimed that Bayern are willing to offload Tolisso as well as Javi Martinez and Jerome Boateng. This could hand Liverpool a vital opportunity to swoop in and sign a player available on the market who has already publically showcased his desire to move to Anfield.
Calcio Insider claimed in 2018 that a source had told them: “Tolisso wants a Premier League move and his dream is Liverpool.”
Following the injury setbacks to Jordan Henderson and Fabinho this season as well as reports from The Mirror that claim Naby Keita could leave the club in the summer window, Liverpool will need fresh midfield acquisitions.
According to The Independent, Liverpool are already being linked with a move for Bundesliga trio Jadon Sancho, Kai Havetz and Timo Werner meaning Jurgen Klopp could add a quartet of some of the German league’s biggest names.
At £38m, Tolisso could be a viable option considering some of the club’s potential outgoings in the summer.
Adam Lallana is due to leave once his contract expires at the end of the season while Keita is no closer to vindicating why Liverpool were forced to spend a £52.8m fee to sign the Guinean talisman from RB Leipzig in 2018.
With 14 goals and 12 assists in 68 matches since joining Bayern, Tolisso has showcased that he has the end product required to thrive in a team such as Liverpool that is already littered in world-class talent.
If Tolisso is available for the right price and Klopp feels the player could adapt to his own philosophies and style of play then Liverpool should certainly consider handing the Frenchman his dream move.
