Lyon star Corentin Tolisso has admitted that he has big dreams of playing for Arsenal. The twenty-two year old talented forward has been a bright spot for the Lyon team since his breakthrough season in 2013. He feels that his playing style will be ideal for the English Premier League.
Tolisso stated, “Many clubs with teams like Arsenal and Barcelona have shown interest in me.”
Tolisso also stated, “I am fond of the Premier League and I think my skills are well-suited for the league. The league offers world-class competition. It is open, competitive, and glamorous.”
