Man Utd, Arsenal spy cut-price deal for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso

Manchester United and Arsenal are battling for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

BILD says Tolisso, 26, has one year left on his contract and as such, Bayern are willing to part with the France international for a hugely reduced fee of around £8.5million in order to recoup some value and get his wages off their books.

New Bayern boss Julien Nagelsmann is keen to bring in midfielder Marcel Sabitzer from his former club RB Leipzig, and has to sell in order to make the deal happen with Tolisso the prime candidate to leave.

Bayern initially set a price tag of £17m for Tolisso, but have lowered their expectations after receiving no offers at that price.

News of Tolisso's availability has reportedly pricked ears at Old Trafford and the Emirates, as well as several other clubs.
