Arsenal target honored by Juve interest


Reported Arsenal target Corentin Tolisso admits he is flattered to know Juventus are interested in his services, according to reports in Italy.

The Lyon midfielder was a subject of a £32.5 million from Napoli which was turned down by the Ligue 1 club. The 22-year-old has also drawn interest from the Gunners in recent weeks, with the player claiming back in October last year that it would be a ‘dream’ to play for a club like Arsenal and in the Premier League.

However, Italian publication Calciomercatoweb now claim the France Under-21 international is targeting a move to Juventus:

“Juve are a historic club, it is an honor for me to know of their interest. But for now I think of Lyon, where I will play the second part of the season and will give everything to the end.”

A move away from the French club looks highly unlikely to happen this month, with a summer move more probable.

Tolisso has been a regular for Lyon this season, starting 23 of his 25 appearances in all competitions, and is seen as one of the brightest prospects currently operating in Ligue 1.
