RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano reportedly emerges as a transfer target for Manchester City.

Manchester City could reportedly move for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano in January.

The 21-year-old, who has made 11 appearances for his German club this season, is believed to be a transfer target for both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

A recent report claimed that Spurs would battle their London rivals for the defender's signature at the start of 2020, but according to 90min, Pep Guardiola's side could beat both clubs to a deal.

The report claims that City's issues in central defence could force them into the January market, with Upamecano being considered as a target ahead of the winter window.

The France Under-21 international, who missed the second half of the 2018-19 campaign with a knee injury, will reportedly see the release clause in his current deal drop to £53m ahead of next season.

Fernandinho and John Stones are currently operating as the two centre-backs in City's defence with Aymeric Laporte on the sidelines and inspirational captain Vincent Kompany leaving ahead of the new campaign.

Nicolas Otamendi is another option for Guardiola, but the Argentina international has been out of favour in recent weeks following some questionable performances.
