3. Corentin Tolisso
Corentin Tolisso is a FIFA World Cup champion with France, four-time Bundesliga champion and one-time Champions League winner with Bayern Munich. But all these accolades don’t define his career or the misery that lies underneath the trophies.
Since lifting the coveted World Cup with France, Tolisso has barely touched the French squad. Bayern Munich also haven’t had got the chance to enjoy the Frenchman’s services to the full extent over the last few years.
The only reason for all these is indeed Tolisso’s eye-watering injury record. As shown by Transfermarkt, injuries have repeatedly ravaged his career and halted his development. As a result, the 27-year-old has never notched more than 1000 minutes in the Bundesliga over the past three seasons. And that’s sad.
On his best day, which doesn’t come too often, he is a good player. However, due to his lack of defensive acumen, Tolisso is a liability while being played in the defensive midfield position. He prefers playing the mezzala role on the pitch.
It doesn’t look as if Juventus are determined to bring in an injury-prone figure like Corentin Tolisso unless they want a like-for-like replacement for Aaron Ramsey, who is likely to be sold in the approaching January window.
How beneficial he could be: 4/10
