Real Madrid to snap up Arsenal defensive target


Spanish La Liga champions Real Madrid are reportedly making moves to snap up the signature of Arsenal defensive target, Dayot Upamecano this summer transfer window.

Dayot Upamecano was a top name on the list of the wanted players by the North London outfit in the last summer transfer window but the Gunners failed to convince his move.

Real Madrid are now making efforts to land him by activating his release clause of £60 million as the French man has been identified as the real deal for the club to challenge for titles next season.

The 21-year-old defender has been in top form for his team for the past seasons and has established himself as one of the big names in Europe, the reason why he is attracting interest from bigger teams like Arsenal and Real Madrid.

It is now unknown if he would be allowed to leave RB Leipzig this summer window but there is no doubt that the German Bundesliga club will immediately release him if they have £60 million on the table.

Real Madrid enjoyed success in La Liga this season but they are hoping to extend it to Europe in the coming season, the reason why they are making plans to add more depth to the team.
