Arsenal overtaking Manchester United to get Dayot Upamecano deal..

Report claims that Arsenal won the race for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano.

The 21-year-old’s existing deal with Leipzig is due to expire next June, and it is understood that the defender can be signed for a fee in the region of £53m before the end of the month.

The Red Devils have been strongly linked with a potential move in recent weeks, but according to Tuttosport, Arsenal have secured a deal for the center back.

The report claims that AC Milan have also been interested in a move for Upamecano but were quickly informed by Leipzig that the powerful central defender was heading to the Emirates Stadium ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The 21 years old has made 25 Bundesliga appearances this season but missed his side’s last league game against Hoffenheim through suspension.

William Saliba – signed from Saint-Etienne last summer before remaining on loan in France – is also due to officially arrive at the London club ahead of next campaign.
