Chelsea, Arsenal boost as Upamecano determined to quit RB Leipzig

Dayot Upamecano is determined to land a move away from RB Leipzig this summer.

While RBL management plan to offer the defender new terms, Fussball Transfers says he has decided to leave the Germans.

Upamecano is now inside the final year of his existing deal and is being courted by Arsenal and Chelsea in England. Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich are also keen.

It's emerged he had struck personal terms with Bayern a fortnight ago, but his contract's €60m buyout clause proved too steep for Bayern.

Such a figure, however, will not be a problem for big spending Chelsea.
