Arsenal to make cut-price 40m transfer move for Dayot Upamecano with RB Leipzig star wanted to ease defensive worries

ARSENAL will make a cut-price move for France centre-back Dayot Upamecano to boost Unai Emerys defensive worries.

The Gunners failed with a 40million move for the Red Bull Leipzig youngster but the German club are braced for a fresh bid.

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is believed to be a target for Arsenal

Upamecano, 20, has not signed a new deal with the Bundesliga high-flyers and his contract expires at the end of next season.

With the prospect of losing him for nothing in just over 18 months, he could leave with another 40million offer.

Arsenal are expected to make their move either in January or the summer – but Upamecano is firmly on their radar as the centre-back they want.

Emery signed David Luiz, 32, from Chelsea in the summer but Upamecano is seen as a player who could be the cornerstone of Arsenals defence for years.

He also has William Saliba, 18, on loan at St Etienne but Upamecano would be ready to play in the first-team immediately.

The French youth international has featured in five games this season in all competitions.

He will be vying to start against Zenit in the Champions League this evening.
