Chelsea are purportedly in advanced talks with RB Leipzig over a move for Dayot Upamecano.
Report states that Chelsea are set to make another strike on the German club after recently signing Timo Werner for £47.5m.
Lampard’s men are leading the race to sign the young defender, who has also been connected with Arsenal and Manchester United. With the Spanish source recommending that a deal for the player is close.
Dayot Upamecano, 21, is one of Europe’s most profoundly evaluated young defenders and has played 28 times this season.
There are multiple reports last week that Chelsea were anticipating to convince RB Leipzig into doing more business with the club and now the most recent report says the ball is in the court of the player.
The young defender has one year left on his contract with RB Leipzig and has a £50m release clause.
A month ago Sky Sports constantly guaranteed the defender would extend his present contract by one more year to 2022.
In any case, that deal has never been inevitable however and RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche deny the talk.
Dayot Upamecano would be an amazing buy for Chelsea ahead of next season.
