Chelsea are reportedly very interested in signing Bayern Munich star Dayot Upemacano this summer window.

Upamecano and the club have been synonymous with each other for years as the club attempted to sign the player when he was 17 years old, but he has always rejected a move to the Premier League.

However – After three years in Bavaria, the 25-year-old defender, under contract until 2026, could be tempted to start a new phase elsewhere, and Speaking on the podcast, journalist Christian Falk suggested that the Frenchman was in the clubs sights – despite some under-par performances for the German giants.

He said: “Yes, it’s true: CHELSEA would like Dayot Upamecano. It’s not really clear yet whether he’ll have a chance next year. Vincent Kompany is looking at everyone, but would Bayern let him go?

“That would probably cost a lot of money. At the time, Bayern paid €€42.5m to RB Leipzig.”

However – the report adds that newly appointed Bayern Munich boss, Vincent Kompany, “is fully counting on the former Leipzig defender. The Belgian will now have to convince him of the benefit of staying in Bavaria”, as Bayern are much happier to let Kim Min-Jae or Matthijs De Ligt leave

Upamecano has long been linked with a move to the Premier Leagues, but this is probably the best chance that wehave to sign the defender as the Germans will probably have to sell before they can buy players.

He would be a world class signing for the club that is for sure.
