The 22-year-old scored who scored 14 goals for Lyon last season, signed for the German champions on Wednesday after undergoing a medical.

Speaking about the new signing, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said:

"We're really pleased we've been able to sign such a young and interesting player ahead of stiff competition from abroad. Corentin Tolisso was (coach) Carlo Ancelotti's wish for our midfield."
