West Ham signing Corentin Tolisso could now be a reality as report claims he's not in Nagelsmann's plans

West Ham target Corentin Tolisso is not in the plans of Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann according to a report from L’Equipe (print edition August 11th, page 11).

Sport 1 first reported about the Hammers’ interest in signing the 27-year-old Bayern midfielder at the start of this month.

And then Bild suggested yesterday that the French World Cup winner could be picked up for just £8.4 million this summer.

Now L’Equipe claims that Tolisso is almost certainly set to leave the Bavarian giants.

He’s allegedly not in the plans of Bayern boss Nagelsmann and the Bundesliga giants are desperate to move him on.

West Ham signing Tolisso now realistic?

It has to be said that when the first report emerged linking us with a move to sign the 27-year-old we were sceptical to say the least.

It does seem like this one could have some legs though.

If Bayern are genuinely desperate to sell the Frenchman, there is no reason why we couldn’t sign him.

Tolisso may well demand huge wages, but he is available for a bargain fee so that cancels out his salary.

Juventus allegedly want the 27-year-old as well but hopefully the prospect of living in London could tip the scales in our favour.

Signing the Bayern Munich ace certainly doesn’t seem to be outside the realms of reality now.

£8.4 million for a player with the Frenchman’s quality would be truly outstanding value for West Ham.

And there really is no reason why the Hammers shouldn’t be able to sign the midfielder now… apart from GSB of course!
