Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Sunday, January 10.

Sunday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:

Chelsea 'want to sign Dayot Upamecano this summer'

Chelsea are reportedly keen to bring RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano to Stamford Bridge during this summer's transfer window.

The 22-year-old was strongly linked with both Liverpool and Manchester United last year but signed a new deal with his Bundesliga club at the end of July.

The Frenchman's contract is thought to include a release clause in the region of £40m, though, and Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff recently hinted that the defender could soon be on the move.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea have now joined the race for Upamecano, although Frank Lampard's side could face competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

The report claims that Thiago Silva's age, in addition to the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori, means that the London club want to sign a new central defender ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

Upamecano has made 123 appearances for Leipzig since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg in 2017.

Liverpool 'have priorities ahead of new Mohamed Salah deal'

Liverpool reportedly do not view signing Mohamed Salah up to a new contract as an immediate priority.

The Egypt international still has two and a half years left to run on his deal at Anfield, but there is currently speculation surrounding the 28-year-old, who recently hinted at a switch to Spain.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool have priorities ahead of Salah's contract, with extensions for Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk seen by the club as more important.

Romano claims that Salah's agent has been in talks with the Premier League champions over a fresh deal but no negotiations are currently taking place between the two parties.

The Egyptian has again been in impressive form for Jurgen Klopp's side during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 17 times in 25 appearances in all competitions.

Real Madrid have allegedly made Salah a leading transfer target ahead of this summer's window.
