"I have no doubt that EU officials would welcome Corbyn coming into power"

I beg to differ.
Yes, they all know that it would be better for the relationship between the UK and the EU. Also that it would be better for the EU.

But almost all of them are economically firmly-right to far-right governments. Even Sweden has drifted much further to the right than where we typically expect them to be. I don't think that they would welcome having a successful left-wing government in such a visible country.
Indeed, the bones thrown to prop up May post Florence seemed to me a sign of EU governments wanting to support a fellow conservative.
