RB Leipzig defender Upamecano pushed about Chelsea, Arsenal interest

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is tightlipped on talk of interest from abroad.

The France international is being linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona this week.

Asked about the speculation, Upamecano told Foot Mercato: "Naturally (it's an honour).

"But as I said, I'm in Leipzig and I want to achieve my goals with the club. I don't feel like talking about anything else right now.

"I want to end the season with Leipzig in the best possible way and nothing else."

He also stated: "I feel very comfortable in Leipzig. I love my teammates, the staff and my club. At the moment I am still under contract until 2021. It is my duty to continue to train well and play my games.

"Even if I know that there are clubs that want me, I stay on the ground with both feet, that's for sure. We will discuss my future with my advisors and my family at the end of the season."
