​DONE DEAL: Chelsea, Juventus target Tolisso signs with Bayern

Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso has completed his move to Bayern Munich for a reported fee of £35.2m.

The talented 22-year old, who had been linked with Chelsea and Juventus, has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the Bundesliga champions.

Tolisso told the club's website: "I had a wonderful time at Lyon, for which I was very grateful. Now I'm looking forward to playing for one of the best clubs in Europe. I have set myself high goals with Bayern. Today is a great day for me."

The Frenchman scored 14 goals from midfield for Les Gones and was named in the Europa League best XI for the tournament.

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hailed the signing as a "dream" for boss Carlo Ancelotti.

"We are very happy that we were able to sign this young and very interesting player despite strong competition from abroad," he said.

"Corentin Tolisso was the dream player for boss Carlo Ancelotti."
