Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly among the clubs weighing up a summer transfer swoop for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

Tolisso has fallen out of favour at Bayern since Hans-Dieter Flick took charge in November, with the French international having started just seven Bundesliga games under the new manager.

Before that the central midfielder's progress was hampered by injuries, and the 25-year-old is believed to be considering a fresh start away from the Allianz Stadium.

And that has alerted Arsenal and United - as well as a host of other top European clubs - to a possible bargain in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners and United are joined in the queue for the World Cup winner's services by Juventus, Atletico Madrid, and Napoli, according to Foot Mercato.

Arsenal and Manchester United could be set to battle it out for Corentin Tolisso

The French outlet reports that Bayern are ready to sell Tolisso, who they signed for £37million in 2017.

Due to injuries the midfielder has made just 68 appearances for Bayern since then, so his price tag has dropped significantly and he could be picked up for around £23m, according to Transfermarkt.

Arsenal will be seeking midfield reinforcements this summer, while United are also on the lookout amid the expectation that Paul Pogba will leave this summer.

And both clubs will be considering whether Tolisso can recapture the form that saw him named in France's World Cup-winning squad of 2018.

James Rodriguez has also been linked with both United and Arsenal

The Gunners could also face competition from United for another midfield target, with the Red Devils reportedly considering a move for Real Madrid misfit James Rodriguez.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Rodriguez could end up being part of a swap deal for Pogba, with Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane known to be keen on the United midfielder.

Rodriguez has played just seven La Liga games for Madrid this season, and is expected to move on this summer with Arsenal, Everton, Napoli and Juventus all having been linked with the 28-year-old Columbia international.
