The true reality is starting to show that a few clubs would have to remain quiet in the market for some time, and one of those could be Barcelona.
Ivisionsport have given an account of the most recent with a potential transfer for RB Leipzig centre back Dayot Upamecano, and there could be some uplifting news for Arsenal.
They guarantee that Mikel Arteta is desperate to improve his defence this Summer and the French defender could be the perfect man for them to get, but it’s not clear yet if they will have the option to the youngster’s asking price.
