Corentin Tolisso will be hoping to occupy a place on Liverpool’s wish-list as they seek to strengthen in midfield this summer.
The French international has defied the norm by seemingly expressing his desire to secure a move to Anfield at one point in his career.
Tolisso, who is currently at the World Cup with France, signed for Bayern Munich from Lyon last summer for a Bundesliga record fee of €41.5million.
He has since impressed in Germany with 10 goals and seven assists in 40 games across all competitions, catching the eye at the end of the season with a superb display as Bayern were knocked out by Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final second leg at the Bernabeu.
“Tolisso wants Premier League (move) and dream (is) Liverpool,” reports Calcio Insider.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool plan on bolstering their midfield further having already signed Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and more recently Fabinho from Monaco.
The imminent departure of Emre Can could carve open another gap in need of filling in consideration of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s long-term spell on the sidelines and uncertainty over the production of Adam Lallana next season.
Adding more creativity to replace Philippe Coutinho appears the current priority following the collapse of Nabil Fekir’s proposed £53million move to Merseyside.
Introducing a new goalkeeper is likely to follow close behind on the to-do list, with interest in Roma’s Alisson having diffused in light of his £80million valuation.
Tolisso may be left to continue dreaming, although it’s always nice to be reminded of Liverpool’s glistening prestige.
