Bundesliga hot-shots RB Leipzig are ready to make certain moves during the January transfer moves in order to bolster their ranks and continue the title push in their first-ever season in Germany’s top flight.
Head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl is keen to add at least one defender to his ranks and has identified RB Salzburg’s Dayot Upamecano as the top January target, according to German media outlet Kicker.
The French youngster has excelled in Austrian league this season, having so far made 15 starts for his club.
The 18-year-old is a product of the youth team of Valenciennes FC where he attracted plenty of attention from the host of Europe’s top clubs including Manchester United.
Upamecano joined Red Bull Salzburg in July 2015 for a reported fee of €2.2 million and his move to Red Bull Salzburg would come as no surprise given the fact that both sides are owned by the same company.
