Bayern Munich are leading the race to sign the RB Leipzig central defender Dayot Upamecano, who will be available for a cut-price €42.5m (£37.3m) but face competition from Chelsea and Liverpool.

Chelsea’s new manager, Thomas Tuchel, is a big admirer of Upamecano since his time in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund while Liverpool will consider whether to make an official bid for the centre-back, having followed him for a considerable time.
