Lyon president confirms contact with Corentin Tolisso

During Alexandre Lacazette’s unveiling as a Lyon player, president Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed that he is working on bringing another former Lyon player, Corentin Tolisso (27), back to the club. 

Like Lacazette, Tolisso is a free agent having run down his contract at Bayern Munich, where he has experienced an injury-ridden spell. 

On a potential return for Tolisso, Aulas said, “I can confirm that contact has been established. Tolisso is in a different context to Lacazette, but the contact has been established. Clearly, the contact wasn’t established as long ago as with Lacazette and there are other considerations.”

He continued, “But there are others players, free or not that interest us as well, because as I’ve said, the recruitment will be ambitious.”

On a return for Tolisso, new signing Lacazette said, “He’s a free agent so the club could lean towards him. I don’t know if he has any other offers, but I’m pushing for him to arrive. After that, I’ll let the President sort out the contractual side.”
