Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur to battle Arsenal and Newcastle United for Corentin Tolisso

According to the French publication Jeunes Footeux (h/t The Shields Gazette), Tottenham Hotspur will face competition from Newcastle United and Arsenal for the signature of Bayern Munich ace Corentin Tolisso.

The Frenchman has featured in nine matches this season, but the minutes amount to just 262 across all competitions. He has a goal and an assist during the limited time he has played for the Bavarian side.

The 27-year-old will also see his contract expire in the summer of 2022 and can leave as a free agent. He can also have a pre-contract agreement with other clubs in the January transfer window.

Antonio Conte has given his approval for the signing of the French international, and Mikel Arteta has done the same for the North London rivals. Newcastle, meanwhile have identified him as a “marquee signing” under the new ownership.

The midfielder’s time in Germany has been plagued by injuries that have prevented him from becoming a regular at the club. He has fallen out of favour under Julian Nagelsmann and is also behind a struggling Marcel Sabitzer in the pecking order.

Earlier, it was said that the Frenchman has a salary package of around £100,000-a-week, which could be expensive in his current situation. His wages may have to be adjusted to reduce the risk involved should a transfer happen in the future. But should he join on a free next year, it could help him to get the upper hand in the negotiations.

Spurs need to bring in reinforcements in the coming transfer windows if they have ambitions to challenge for titles under Conte. At the moment, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp look to be the preferred midfield pairing at the base.

Harry Winks has taken his chance in the recent match against Leeds whereas, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are yet to gain a foothold under the Italian. Even so, a midfield option of five seems very thin and could easily be affected by injuries or suspensions. The addition of Tolisso would ensure that the squad has valuable depth.
