Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have urged the north London club to sign Dayot Upamecano after an article from Bild (via Daily Mail) stated that his release clause will be £55 million in the summer transfer window.
Spurs will also face competition from arch-rivals Arsenal for his signature, as per the report.
Upamecano has averaged 5.7 total duels won in the Bundesliga this season, on top of 3.3 clearances, 2.1 tackles and 1.7 interceptions, according to Sofascore. The 21-year old was also rated the best player on the pitch when RB Leipzig beat Tottenham 3-0 in the Champions League last-16 second leg at the Red Bull Arena, achieving an 8 overall score, as per the website.
These Spurs supporters hailed the Frenchman on Twitter and urged their club to do whatever it takes to sign him in the summer, with one suggesting that he looks a ‘unit‘:
Pay whatever it takes plsssss Levy
