RB Leipzig are not considering selling their centre-back Dayot Upamecano this month even though he can leave in the summer for a cut-price €42m (£37.4m).

The 22-year-old Frenchman has a release clause that comes into effect in the summer but it is way below his market value so several clubs have asked Leipzig whether a January deal would be possible.

However, with Julian Nagelsmann’s team involved in the Bundesliga title race – they are two points behind the leaders, Bayern Munich, after Saturday’s defeat by Borussia Dortmund – and set to face Liverpool in the Champions League last 16, they are not considering selling their defensive linchpin halfway through the season.
