RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche calls on defender Dayot Upamecano to not rush into making any decision about his future.

RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche wants Dayot Upamecano to 'take his time' when making a decision over his future.

Having established himself as one of the top prospects in Europe during his time in Germany, Upamecano is being linked with a number of high-profile clubs.

Although a switch to either Arsenal or Barcelona appears to be a possibility for the Frenchman, Krosche feels that the centre-back should remain patient when it comes to mapping out the next stage of his career in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to Kicker, Krosche said: "This is a far-reaching decision for a player. He should take his time with that.

"He has to be clear about exactly what he is going to do, how he sees his future. Maybe that has changed a bit as a result of the new situation."

The 21-year-old has a £55m release clause in his contract.
