Barcelona and Arsenal have reportedly joined the likes of Juventus and Chelsea in the pursuit of Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso.



The 22-year-old has been in good form for Les Gones during the ongoing campaign with six goals and three assists in 25 Ligue 1 appearances.

Tolisso's impressive touch is said to have recently captured interest from the likes of Chelsea and Juventus with the latter speculated to be close to reaching an agreement over a summer deal.

However, Catalan outlet Sport claims that Barcelona have entered the chase for the Frenchman with Arsenal also considering a potential swoop during the off-season.

Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez is understood to have kept a close watch on the central midfielder during his France's international friendly with Spain on Tuesday night.

The midfielder featured for 80 minutes in his debut for Les Bleus, but was unable to make a solid impact as they fell to a 2-0 loss.
