Milan want Spaniard Dani Olmo of Dinamo Zagreb

Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo, a native Spaniard, is wanted by Italian giants Milan, according to reports.

The 20-year-old has represented La Roja up to Under-18 level but his move from Barcelona to Zagreb in 2015 has led to attempts to gain Croatian citizenship.

“I can confirm that Milan and other clubs are following Dani,” his agent Juanma Lopez told

“There are several Italian clubs interested in him, as well as some in England and Spain.”

Olmo joined Dinamo as part of the swap deal which saw Alen Halilovic move to Barcelona.

“I want to be called-up to the Spain Under-21 squad,” Olmo told an interview with Diario AS.

“My dream since I was a boy was to play for Spain but the call has not come so why not, I would love to represent this nation (Croatia).

“The paperwork (for his Croatian passport) has been done and that opens the door for the move, it would be an honour to play alongside the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.”

Olmo’s fine form at club level has led to a nomination for the 2018 Golden Boy award – handed to the best Under-21 player of the year.

“It is an honour to be recognised at this level,” Olmo added.
