Arsenal would like to have Dayot Upamecano signed. He’s currently playing for RB Leipzig as a defender. Unai Emery, the club’s coach hopes he’ll manage to grasp that player before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
The previous week, the coach successfully attracted Lille’s Nicolas Pepe to the squad, with the deal worth $ 87,68m. Now the coach is considering Dayot Upamecano as a good defensive reinforcement to the squad. In addition to this, the coach also would like to acquire Daniele Rugani.
It feels like the Gunners appear to be the only football club interested in Dayot Upamecano. However, this summer Manchester United were interested in the French defender until they managed to buy Leicester’s Harry Maguire for up to $97,43m.
Taking into account Arsenal’s quite limited transfer budget for the upcoming season, it’s apparent that the football club will try to opt for a loan deal.
As for the probable fee for the French defender, it’s believed that it may potentially reach up to $ 108,39m.
