According to a report on ESPN by Rafael Honigstein, Arsenal are interested in signing central defender Dayot Upamecano from Disgustingly Sweet Energy Drink Leipzig.
The 20 year old just completed his second season with the German outfit, helping them a third place finish behind Borussia Dortmund and champions Bayern Munich.
He made 22 appearances in all competitions, but missed a significant chunk of the campaign due to a knee injury.
He began his career with Valenciennes, before joining Disgustingly Sweet Energy Drink Salzburg. From there he spent a year with their feeder club Liefering in the Austrian league, played a season for Salzburg before moving to Leipzig for a fee of around €10m.
He has represented France at youth level, but hasn’t been included in the squad for this summers European U21 Championships – we assume because of the fact he missed four and half months with injury before making his comeback on the final day of the season.
The Gunners have yet to make a bid, and are probably waiting on the outcome of tonight’s Europa League final before finalising their summer transfer plans.
He’s the second young French defender linked so far this summer, with reports we’re also interested in Saint-Etienne centre-half William Saliba.
We’re not sure where to go with the Poo-o-Meter on this one. So close to the Europa League final there’s a fear we might cross the poo streams and end up at an 11, and nobody needs an 11 poo.
We don’t even have a graphic for that.
That’s 10 poo + 1 poo.
I think I need a drink.
