Liverpool are reportedly chasing Dinamo Zagreb star Dani Olmo, and have done so for several months, according to MARCA – via Sport Witness.
The 21-year-old stood out for the Spaniards at the European U21 championship, which they went on to win by defeating Germany 2-1 in the final.
Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be keeping tabs on the attacking midfielder. As per MARCA, Zagreb were dead against selling their rising star before the European competition as they expected Olmo to shine on the big stage.
Liverpool have already recruited a young talent this summer in Sepp van den Berg, and a move for Spanish international certainly isn’t out of the question.
Olmo could link up with some of the most promising rising stars at Anfield in Ki-Jana Hoever, Joe Gomez and now van den Berg, and a potential deal is valued at around €22-27million – according to the same report.
The Spaniard is said to be of a similar playing style to that of former Red Philippe Coutinho – if we sign the 21-year-old, we may finally get that creative spark in midfield we’ve cried out for.
MARCA are typically reliable when it comes to players from Spain, so keep your eyes on this one, Reds.
