According to Calciomercato, Tottenham are among clubs interested in Corentin Tolisso. The Bayern Munich star has attracted a lot of interest due to his contract that expires at the end of the season. It would make the midfielder available as a free agent next summer, with Spurs being joined by Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid in the list of clubs interested in his services.

Corentin Tolisso’s Struggles At Bayern Munich

Formerly of Olympique Lyon, Corentin Tolisso has never really managed to fulfil his potential since joining Bayern Munich in 2017. During his time in Bavaria, the midfielder has won three Bundesliga titles and most notably, a treble under Hansi Flick during the 2019/20 campaign.

However, the Frenchman had very little contribution to those achievements. In fact, Tolisso’s career at Bayern has largely been marred by injuries, with the player suffering 12 different spells on the sidelines, including an ACL injury in 2018 that kept him out for almost seven months.

In addition to his fitness problems, Tolisso has struggled to keep up with the ever-growing competition in the Bayern Munich midfield. The current duo of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, in particular, have become indispensable figures in the club’s midfield unit while the further addition of Marcel Sabitzer in the summer has made life even more difficult for the Frenchman.

As a result, Tolisso has been involved in just 38 minutes of Bundesliga football next season. And with his current contract at Allianz Arena expiring at the end of the season, it appears Bayern Munich are ready to move on.

Is Tolisso A Sensible Option?

Tottenham Hotspur‘s search for a new midfielder is hardly surprising as they do lack quality depth in their midfield department. The team has often appeared overly reliant on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg while his partner Oliver Skipp doesn’t tend to offer much creativity in midfield.

The actual creative midfielders in Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele have all either struggled with form or injuries. Hence, Nuno Espirito Santo could certainly use the addition of a new face in the middle of the park.

However, Corentin Tolisso might not be the most prudent of choice for Spurs. As mentioned earlier, the Bayern Munich star has struggled with injuries during his time in the Bundesliga and despite his wealth of experience, he might not improve the Tottenham side by a great deal.

In fact, Tolisso’s hefty wages could prove to be a burden for the club, even if they get rid of both Alli and Ndombele in January. Therefore, it would perhaps be a wiser move for Spurs to set their sights on other, preferably young and more physically strong, alternatives who can settle in nicely in the Premier League.
