Corentin Tolisso is open to leaving Bayern Munich in January with his Bundesliga side ready to sell the reported Newcastle and Tottenham transfer target, according to Foot Mercato.

Der FCB are keen to offload the Frenchman during the mid-season market to avoid Tolisso leaving for free next summer. His contract at the Allianz Arena will expire in June and there are no plans from either side to extend.

Tolisso’s departure is inevitable as things currently stand in Bavaria, so Bayern hope to earn some form of compensation. The midfielder became their club-record arrival at the time of his capture from Lyon in 2017 for €41m (£35m).

But injuries have plagued Tolisso’s time with Bayern Munich, with the 27-year-old spending periods on the sidelines due to cruciate ligament, ankle, muscle, tendon and calf problems.

He now no longer rules out leaving the Allianz in the winter to find a prominent role. Julian Nagelsmann has only started him in three of his six Bundesliga outings so far this season.

Tottenham and Newcastle are among the sides tracking Tolisso’s Bayern Munich situation in view of a transfer. But Foot Mercato also note Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have looked towards the 2018 World Cup winner.

Reports by Jeunes Footeux cited the Toon as seeking further information on his situation in November. However, Football Italia claimed Spurs were on pole as their Managing Director Fabio Paratici has long admired Tolisso, who wants a €6m-a-year (£98k-a/w) contract.

Newcastle or Tottenham hold Tolisso transfer advantage ahead of Bayern Munich exit

Additionally, Football Italia noted Inter Milan, Roma and Juventus are all unwilling to meet Tolisso’s wage demands. So, Spurs or the Magpies may hold a substantial advantage.

Tolisso will also offer Tottenham and Newcastle confidence of sealing a transfer with the midfielder and Bayern Munich open to separating from as early as the January window.

The lack of a transfer fee next summer could bring his Serie A suitors back into the mix. But the Premier League riches should allow either Tottenham or Newcastle to agree terms with Bayern Munich and Tolisso during the January transfer window and sign a dynamic option.

While injuries have plagued Tolisso’s time in Bavaria, he has still shown he can offer a box-to-box option.

“He can defend, he can attack, and he can play a strong role in midfield,” former Bayern Munich striker Jean-Pierre Papin once told Bild. “He is also technically strong, dangerous for goals and a good preparer.”
