Chelsea are said to have a good relationship with Leipzig after signing Werner for £53m, and this could increase their chances to sign Upamecano. The West Londoners boss, Frank Lampard is not convinced with Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori to partner with Antonio Rudiger in the defence.
Lampard is said to be keen for a centre back who will cement the defence when paired with Rudiger. Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also interested with Upamecano. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
