Tolisso dismisses Juventus rumours

Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso has dismissed suggestions he is set to join Juventus at the end of the season.

Tolisso has been a key figure for Lyon this term after turning down a reported €37.5million move to Napoli ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

He has scored 11 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 giants, leading to reports that the 22-year-old could receive further interest from Serie A - with some claiming a deal with Juve is already in the pipeline.

Tolisso was quick to reject those rumours, though, and committed his future to Lyon. 

"I have not signed anything with Juventus," the midfielder told L'Equipe.

"I have a contract with Lyon until 2020, so that should answer all questions about whether I am still here next season."

The midfielder is in line for his France debut this week after being included in Didier Deschamps' squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg and the friendly versus Spain.
