Arsenal keen on signing 20-year-old defender before transfer deadline

Arsenal are interested in a deal to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the north London side are eyeing a move to bring the 20-year-old to The Emirates this summer as an alternative to Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.

However, whether a deal can be struck before Thursday’s deadline remains to be seen, as according to the same story, the Gunners are being put off by Leipzig’s £50m valuation of the centre-half.

The same story says that Arsenal are trying to get a loan deal for Rugani, 24, done before the deadline, but Juventus would prefer a permanent switch.
