Upamecano set for Bayern move

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is prepared to snub the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in order to join Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window.

The Frenchman was linked with a late move to the Gunners last summer but the deal failed to materialise before the transfer deadline.

Still, the club have been linked with the centre-back on numerous occasions but it appears that they are set to miss out on his services alongside the Blues.

According to Bild, Upamecano is aware of the interest from the Gunners and Blues but he would prefer to remain in the Bundesliga next season.

It is added that the Leipzig defender has set his sights on joining Bayern and he has already agreed a contract with the reigning German champions.

Upamecano currently has a £53m release clause present on his contract but Bayern are likely to prise him away for a cheaper price, given his deal is due to expire in 14 months' time.
