Chelsea Have Opened Talks With 22-year-old Prolific Playmaker

Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with Ligue 1 giants Lyon over the signing of £20m-rated prolific midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

Lyon forward has attracted plenty of interest from the Blues London rivals Arsenal following rumours linking Alexis Sanchez with an exit from Emirates Stadium.
The 22-year-old midfielder hinted last month that he could leave the club for Champions League football and after Gunners failed to finish top four Chelsea have emerged as clear favourites to secure his signature.
As per to L’Equipe, Lyon’s chief Jean-Michel Aulas had met with the Chelsea officials last week.
The Ligue 1 giants are demanding around £20m for the prolific midfielder while also held negotiations over Kurt Zouma’s possible loan move to the opposite side.
The French defender has struggled to break into Antonio Conte’s squad and following recent rumours linking Virgil van Dijk with a move to Stamford Bridge could force the Frenchman to leave the club.
Any move for Zouma could boost Chelsea’s chances of signing Tolisso for the Stamford Bridge side.
Meanwhile, Arsenal despite missing out Champions League football remain confident they could complete the deal for the 22-year-old midfielder.
