Sensational midfielder turns down important contract because he wants to join Arsenal


Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso has rejected a move to Serie A runner-ups Napoli because his dream is to play for Arsenal, Get French Football News has revealed.

The Partenopei made contact to sign the 21-year-old immediately after selling striker Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus.

But their €37.5million was not enough as the French side confirmed on their official website that the youngster will not leave this summer.

"Lyon are pleased to announce that Tolisso has decided to stay with Lyon this season despite strong interest from Napoli," a statement on their official website reads.

"[President] Jean-Michel Aulas said more than once in recent days that he could not imagine Corentin leaving despite the player's initial desire to join Napoli.

"Corentin informed Jean-Michel Aulas on Wednesday of his decision to stay after a long and positive conversation.

"This means L'Equipe were wrong to announce the transfer as a done deal, while they also got their reputed transfer fee of €26million wrong, with Napoli's offer actually worth €37.5million, of which €7.5million were bonuses.

"OL welcomes Corentin's decision to stay, which further illustrates his commitment to this club and the confidence he has that we will have a great season."
