Transfer Target of the Month

Dayot Upamecano, 21, plays as a centre-back for RB Leipzig. He has been a regular in the first team since he joined in 2017 from Salzburg for a fee of €10 million, and is widely considered one of the Bundesliga’s most promising young defenders. 

Upamecano has been heavily linked with Arsenal since the summer of 2019. In fact, shortly before the signing of David Luiz was announced, there was talk of a sensational swoop for Upamecano – but it would have probably been too expensive for Arsenal, who were already over budget.

If recent reports are to be believed, Arteta is a fan of the player, and if the financial situation allows, could make Upamecano his #1 priority. Upamecano’s release clause drops by £17 million every season, so he would cost £55 million this summer. Expect competition from other clubs to be intense.
