4 Reasons Why Arsenal Must Sign Dayot Upamecano


Arsenal are currently linked with a move for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano with Leipzig reportedly willing to listen to offers within the range of £40m.

Here’s a look at 4 reasons why the Gunners should make a concrete move for Upamecano;

3Upamecano’s Age

There’s a common trend in football where a centre-back’s ability tends to be dependent on his age due to the fact that for centre-backs, age is directly linked to their perceived experience level.

While that holds true in some cases, there are some centre-backs who regardless of the amount of top level experience they’ve had will always be class acts, Dayot Upamecano is one of them.

Despite being 21-years-old, Upamecano performs at a level well above his years as he’s able to put himself in the right positions to thwart attacks whilst maintaining his composure within his team’s backline. He’s not quite world-class yet, though, but a few seasons in the Premier League can put him right up there with the best defenders in the world.
