BAYERN MUNICH chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed Chelsea and Liverpool are the two Premier League clubs interested in Dayot Upamecano.
The French defender, 22, is expected to leave RB Leipzig in the summer due to a £38million release clause in his contract.

He did not name them – but Rummenigge let it slip as he confirmed Bayern will also be in the running.
The Bayern Munich CEO said: “In addition to Bayern Munich, there are at least two quite attractive clubs interested.
“The fact is that the player is interesting, and the fact is that we will almost certainly lose David Alaba at his position.
“I can’t say if there will be other departures at the position.
“You have to let things grow in peace. We have a good relationship with Mr. Struth.
“The player will know what he wants at some point. We have a good relationship with RB Leipzig as well. I have had a conversation with Oliver Mintzlaff.
“When things become concrete, we’ll talk again.

Manchester United have also been heavily linked with a move for the French defender.
But Bayern hope to beat the English clubs to Upamecano after holding a secret meeting with his representatives.
According to German newspaper Bild, the player’s agents were seen entering the underground car park of Bayern’s offices last week.
Upamecano has played for RB Leipzig since 2017 and he remains under contract with them until 2023.
