Arsenal drop interest in Upamecano

It's no news that Arsenal have been interested in RB Leipzig defender, Dayot Upamecano for quite a while now, with different reports and newspapers tabling different speculations about breakthroughs in the deal and possible obstructions raising doubts in the credibility of the various reports.

One thing that cannot be put in doubt though, is the quality of the defender in question. Dayot Upamecano is an absolute beast of a defender, at only 20 he's already one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga, with RB Leipzig boasting one of the best defensive records in the league.

According to German publication, 'BILD' Arsenal have however dropped their interest in the Frenchman, having deemed him too expensive. RB Leipzig were reportedly demanding a fee in the region of €100m last summer when Arsenal attempted to pry away the defender. Upamecano though, will be in the last year of his contract by the summer and is expected to take a major drop in transfer value which is quite puzzling why Arsenal should deem him too expensive now, but that's exactly what they've done, according to the publication at least.

This would come as a major transfer blow and disappointment to the Arsenal faithfuls as he's been an anonymous fan choice when it comes to the defensive targets
