Dayotchanculle Oswald Upamecano is a French professional footballer who plays as a central defender for RB Leipzig.

Rumour has it that the Blues could be set for a second consecutive raid on RB Leipzig after swooping for Timo Werner and it’s Upamecano who could follow the striker to West London!

According to tier-1 journalist Nathan Farlouski, formerly of Bild, Dayot Upamecano has rejected a transfer to Arsenal in order to move to Chelsea in the upcoming transfer window

Lampard is expected to make the transfer happen in the coming weeks since he’s in need of a Central defender.  His interest in Declan Rice is also known as well.

French ace Upamecano’s current deal expires in 2021 but he is able to leave if a club meets his £54m release clause.

If Upamecano does not agree terms on a new deal then his Bundesliga employers may be forced to cash in this summer or risk losing him on a free when his contract expires.
