Bayern Munich have already given up on the idea of keeping David Alaba. The versatile Austrian's contract ends in June and he has rejected a number of offers put to him by the German champions.
With him looking set to join Real Madrid, Bayern have been left to look elsewhere.
Now, it looks as though they have already identified the man they want to replace him, RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano.
"I know that Bayern have been in contact with Upamecano's agent and that talks are advanced," said journalist Alfred Draxler to Sport 1.
But the signing won't be easy. Chelsea are also thought to be interested in the 22-year-old, who is under contact until 2023.
There are reports, however, that he has a release clause of 42 million euros.
