Liverpool are Bayern Munich star Corentin Tolisso’s 'dream' club.

That’s according to a source close to the midfielder, who’s previously admitted his admiration for Anfield legend Steven Gerrard.

Liverpool are in the market for new recruits and have already got deals finalised for Naby Keita and Fabinho to join them next month.

The duo are set to form part of a new-look midfield on Merseyside next season, with Jurgen Klopp not afraid to change things up.

It seems another top talent would be keen on lining up alongside Keita and Fabinho, if an unnamed source is to be believed.

"Tolisso wants Premier League [move] and [his] dream [is] Liverpool," the source told Calcio Insider.

The revelation comes after Tolisso enjoyed a promising first season in Germany with Bayern.

Tolisso’s form in the Bundesliga earned him a place in France’s squad for this summer’s World Cup.

It appears he could soon trade in life at the Allianz Arena for Anfield if he gets his way though.

And that would allow him to follow in the footsteps of Liverpool legend Gerrard, who he opened up about last year.

"For me, [the Bundesliga is] a very good championship," said Tolisso.

"But the best is the Premier League. There, there is more spectacle and competition.

"I like the long game, the passes between two opponents, the passes behind the defence. It’s beautiful stuff too I think.

"I’m not going to say that because otherwise people will say: ‘He compares [himself] to Gerrard’, but I like the passes that Gerrard made.

"Steven Gerrard is someone who knew how to do everything. He could score, defend. You could see him everywhere."
