Chelsea is reportedly considering a move from RB Leipzig for center-back Dayot Upamecano. The current deal between the 21-year-old and his German club is scheduled to expire next summer, and it is understood that he can be signed before the end of June for a £53 m fee.
A recent report claimed that with the signing of the International France Under-21, Arsenal had beaten Manchester United which made 27 appearances in the Bundesliga during the 2019-20 campaign.
According to The Athletic, however, the defender’s future is still up in the air and Chelsea may try to bring him to the Stamford Bridge ahead of the season 2020-21.
Frank Lampard ‘s side, who are back in league action against the champions of Manchester City on Thursday, has already reached an agreement with Leipzig to sign German forward Timo Werner this summer.
Powerful and flexible attacker Hakim Ziyech will also arrive at the club in the coming weeks as the Blues attempts to set up a squad that could challenge the Premier League title next season.
