RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this ongoing transfer window and the 21-year-old has admitted talking to the potential suitors.

The centre-back recently earned his first call-up to France’s senior team and speaking ahead of France’s game against Sweden, Dayot Upamecano hinted at a possible exit from the Bundesliga.

“I have extended my contract with Leipzig,” Upamecano said, as reported by Goal.

“I am targeted by several clubs, I speak with clubs, but I have time. We will see what happens in the future.”

“The secret of my success? Keep my feet on the ground, no pressure, and my determination.

“I’ve had this determination since I was a kid and I want to keep working hard to reach the highest level possible.”

Dayot Upamecano to Arsenal or Man United?

Premier League side Arsenal have had a long standing interest in the defender but recently, Manchester United have also joined the race to sign the French international.

Various reports claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very serious about signing the centre-back since the youngster is currently being viewed as the long-term partner to Harry Maguire.

Arsenal have already added Gabriel Magalhaes to their side and we do not think the North London will have enough money left to be able to rope in Dayot Upamecano as well, more so since they want to bring in Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

So as things stand, it’s Man United who are standing at the front of the queue and no other major club are ready to challenge them to in the transfer of the Leipzig man.
