Atletico Madrid move for Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo

Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo is a January transfer target for Atletico Madrid, according to a report in Diario AS.

The rising star received his first call-up to the senior Spain squad for the games against Malta and Romania this month, but did qualify to play for Croatia due to his spell in the nation.

Olmo joined Dinamo as part of the swap deal which saw Alen Halilovic move to Barcelona in 2015 and has since emerged as a star for the Croatian club.

The winger is now 21 and previous reports have claimed the Catalan club have now made contact over the future of the highly-rated player, who has also been linked to Ajax and Tottenham.

The winger starred for his nation in the Under-21 Championships victory this summer, netting in the 2-1 final victory over Germany – and he could have a market valuation of around €40m.

It is said by the report that Olmo’s transfer could be funded by the sale of out-of-favour forward Thomas Lemar, who was signed for a reported €63m from Monaco in the summer of 2018.

Olmo, who made his debut for the Spanish national team against Malta last month, starred in Dinamo’s Champions League clash against Manchester City this week, scoring a widely lauded goal.
