Arsenal have received a major boost in their pursuit of Dayot Upamecano after RB Leipzig have reportedly lowered their asking for the defender.
The centre-back, who is apparently also on the radars of Barcelona and Manchester United, was originally priced at £52.3m.
As a result of the financial implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, RB Leipzig have been forced to taper their expectations and are now willing to let the 21-year-old leave for £34.8m.
Mikel Arteta is desperate to restore Arsenals place in the top four and a leaky defence is something he will want to improve quickly.
Upamecano has made 29 appearances this season and has risen through the French national ranks from u16 to the u21 side with the next step being a senior team call up a possibility in the near future.
