RUMOURS: Man Utd and Arsenal target Upamecano to choose Bundesliga move

The Premier League duo, and German giants Bayern Munich, are set to miss out on the signing of the French defender as he closes in on a move to RB Leipzig

Manchester United and Arsenal are set to miss out on highly-rated teenage defender Dayot Upamecano, according to reports from Sport24.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg and his impressive campaign has seen a number of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich, show an interest.

Red Bull Salzburg's sister club RB Leipzig are said to have offered £10.4 million, however, and are leading the chase for the Frenchman's signature.

RB Leipzig are enjoying their debut season in Germany's top tier, currently sitting just three points behind Carlo Ancelotti's Bayern side in the table.
