Arsenal: Fans desperate for Dayot Upamecano signing

Many Arsenal fans have responded on Twitter to a fan account recommending the signing of RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

Will Arsenal qualify for the Champions League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The account @DougTheGooner tweeted claiming that Upamecano is the “best press resistant CB in the world”. He went on to add that he has the ability to beat opposition defensive lines by using his passing or dribbling skills.

The Leipzig defender was linked to the Emirates throughout the summer, however, with the club signing both David Luiz and William Saliba in the summer they ended up not going in for him.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal made an offer worth around £50m for the French centre half, however, Leipzig were allegedly demanding a fee closer to his full release clause of £82m.

More positively for Arsenal, the same report states that next summer he will be available for a cut-price fee. According to L’Equipe (via the Mirror), Upamecano’s release clause will be slashed to £53million if he does not sign a new deal before the end of this season.

By the looks of the replies below, it seems as if Arsenal fans would welcome another move for him…
