Arsenal are leading the race to sign Leipzig highly-rated defender, Dayot Upamecano.

The German Club have informed AC Milan that the French right-back is on his way to the Premier League.

Upamecano has been linked with a move away from Leipzig with the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester United and AC Milan jostling for his signature.

Arsenal are eyeing defensive reinforcements as they bid to catch up with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

But according to Tuttosport, Milan have been informed by Leipzig that the 21-year-old is set to make a move to Arsenal.

The report claims that Arsenal chiefs have ‘snatched an agreement’ with Leipzig despite the defender being on Ralf Rangnick’s list.

Reports in Italy claim the current Leipzig head of football is set to take over from current Milan boss Stefano Pioli at the end of the season, and was, therefore, preparing to raid Julian Nagelsmann’s side with a bid for Upamecano.
