Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Tuesday, January 12.

Tuesday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:

Arsenal suffer blow in pursuit of Norwich City's Emiliano Buendia?

Arsenal have reportedly been dealt a blow in their efforts to land Norwich City playmaker Emiliano Buendia in the January transfer window.

Creativity through the middle has been a glaring problem for Arsenal this term, and the Gunners are being tipped to move for a new number 10 despite Emile Smith Rowe's recent emergence.

With Mesut Ozil seemingly destined to head for the exit door this month, a possible player-plus-cash deal for Buendia - believed to be Arsenal's top target - has been mooted, but the Gunners are reportedly facing competition for his signature.

According to La Razon, La Liga outfit Valencia have also expressed an interest in Buendia, and the Gunners would struggle to stump up Norwich's asking price of £40m amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Furthermore, the 24-year-old has affirmed that he is "very happy" at Norwich, contributing seven goals and seven assists in the Championship so far as the Canaries look to make an immediate return to the big time.

Buendia still has three-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal at Carrow Road.

Bayern Munich 'in advanced talks to sign RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano'

Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano this month, with talks currently at an advanced stage.

The German champions are understood to have accepted that versatile defender David Alaba will leave the club when his contract expires in the summer.

Marca reports that Bayern have identified Upamecano as the ideal replacement for the Austrian international and would be keen on acquiring the defender in January.

German journalist Alfred Draxler has also revealed that Hansi Flick's side are interested in the Frenchman and that talks have been held.

"I know that Bayern have been in contact with Upamecano's agent and that talks are advanced," Draxler told Sport 1.

Upamecano, who is understood to have a €42m (£40m) release clause, has made 14 appearances in the Bundesliga this season and has played five times in the Champions League.
