RB Leipzig director warns Upamecano 'take time' with Arsenal, Barcelona decision

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has been warned to "take his time" about deciding any future transfer.

The 21-year-old is a summer target for Arsenal and Barcelona, with Leipzig demanding at least £70m for his signature, despite the Frenchman's contract expiring in 2021.

But the club's sporting director, Markus Krosche, has urged Upamecano to think wisely about his next career move.

He told Kicker: "This is a far-reaching decision for a player. He should take his time with that.

"He has to be clear about exactly what he is going to do, how he sees his future.

"Maybe that has changed a bit as a result of the new situation [coronavirus]."
