All the latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world.

Tariq Lamptey

Frank Lampard confirmed that Chelsea are looking to extend Tariq Lamptey’s contract.

The 19-year-old made his debut yesterday and had a great outing against Arsenal.

The right-back’s contract is expiring this summer, and the Blues don’t want to lose such prospect (Goal).

Dayot Upamecano

Arsenal were long rumored to be in for Leipzig’s centre-back.

However, they aren’t the only ones.

Manchester City and Tottenham are also interested in Upamecano, according to Daily Star.

This could launch a bidding war, with Leipzig profiting the most out of it.

Cedric Bakambu

Atletico Madrid found their potential Cavani replacement in China!

In case PSG’s striker doesn’t arrive, Los Colchones will try to sign Bakambu, a former Villareal striker, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.

They need reinforcements upfront immediately, and even Bakambu could be a significant improvement.

James Rodriguez

Rodriguez saw his playing time cut short by Zinedine Zidane this season.

Federico Valverde’s emergence put James completely in the shadow.

However, according to AS, Real Madrid won’t let the Colombian leave in January.

The midfield rotation is still thin and Zidane wants to have options at his disposal.
