Bayern München's supervisory board has approved a move for RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano, according to Bild.

The German publication claims that the supervisory board gave the green light to step up the efforts to sign the highly-rated centre-back back in December.

FC Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have since confirmed they have held talks with the player's representatives and club.

Upamecano, who has a €42.5 million clause in his contract, has also attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, but Bayern are leading the race for his signature, as per Bild.
