RB Leipzig makes a decision over the transfer of Arsenal target

RB Leipzig has decided against selling Arsenal target Dayot Upamecano this month, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Frenchman has been a long-term target of the Gunners for some time now as they look to revamp their defence. He was targeted initially by Unai Emery, and Mikel Arteta has maintained that interest.

RB Leipzig knows that several teams want him, but they are challenging for the league title in Germany and they will not want to lose such an important player at this stage of the season.

Romano says that he has a release clause of €42m payable by any team that wants to sign him, but it will only come into effect in the summer.

Any team that wishes to land him before the end of the season would have to make a crazy offer that is worth more than his release clause to make the move happen.

He Tweeted: “RB Leipzig are not open to sell Dayot Upamecano in January. He’s expected to leave the club next summer – many clubs interested and set to open talks with his agent. The release clause value is €42m. ⛔️ #transfers #Leipzig”

    I think CB is the one position we DON’T need reinforcements this month.

    Mari, Holding are in form, so was our player of the month Gabriel. Luiz is still here, and so are Chambers and Mustafi.

    How much longer is this Upamecano thing going to rumble on for. Just because we might have been interested in him one time every time his name crops up we are talked about as if we still want him. We don’t need him now and certainly not at that price. I’ m surprised the Benzema rumours haven’t started up again !!

    Another transfer tweet from the ITK 😂Romano where we learn nothing new and in which he states the obvious,not for sale in January really I wonder why?might be the fact that RB are fighting for the league?the club which will acquire him will have to pay more than the 42M release clause again really? probably due to the fact that he is in demand (Bayern,Manure,Chelsea…)again is it any surprising?JA should stop reporting on his tweets seriously if credibility matters to this site!

      siamois Do you honestly think that JA gives a hoot about our fan credibility? Serious question. do you honestly now? If they cared a fig for us lot they would not keep insulting our intelligence with endless Ozil articles, all asaying much the same,ie nothing new at all. They just need, for the business that JA actually IS, to keep churningout articles almost hourly.
      Since actual news happens only very rarely at all clubs, they have to constantly rehash already written articles . All they do is phrase them slightly differently. That is the reality but the idea that they give a hoot for what WE want is for the birds frankly.
      On the wider aspect , tell me one business of a big size that truly cares for its customers anywhere,if you can. I challenge you! Amazon, BT, SKY SPORTS, BANKS ETC. ALL CARE ONLY FOR BOTTOM LINE PROFIT BUT TELL LIES IN ADVERTS SAYING THEY CARE.
      Big businesses – as against smaller businesses that DO generally care, as the customer is their personal lifeblood – are selfish entities run by top level decision makers(director level) who put their own salary and power base first and the “little people”, us, who use them and also thei rown employee minions, who have to face the flack from irate customers , nowhere.

      That is how life is in really big business and is is a disgusting, non ethical disgrace. REALITY SIAMOIS, as you must surely already know.
