Versatile Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso has admitted that he dreams of playing for a big club and included Arsenal as one of those teams that he would like to move to.

The Gunners have a rich history of snapping up players from Ligue 1 and made an approach to land Alexandre Lacazette earlier this summer.

However, despite the France international striker not moving to the Emirates Stadium, his Lyon team-mate has openly admitted that he would love to end up in North London one day.

“Many clubs make me dream like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and England with teams like Arsenal,” Tolisso told France Football.

“I love the Premier League and I think I have the profile. This is the championship that also offers more competition, which is the most open, the most contested and most spectacular.”

Tolisso is one of a prodigious group of players to come through the ranks at Lyon at the same time, but does not receive the same acclaim as the likes of Lacazette or Nabil Fekir.

The 22-year-old is versatile enough to play in midfield or as a right-back and has a habit of popping up with important goals for his club.

Tolisso has also represented his nation at under-19 through to under-21 level and has started seven Ligue 1 games for Lyon this season, scoring three goals in the process.
