Barcelona offer for for Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo

Barcelona have made a formal offer for Dinamo Zagreb winger and Spain international Dani Olmo according to multiple reports.

Diario AS verify a report in El Mundo Deportivo claiming the Catalan club have made an approach for the player, which has initially been rejected by the Croatian champions.

The reports believe the player would demand a transfer fee of at least €35m and the Blaugrana believe a summer move is more feasible than January.

The rising star received his first call-up to the senior Spain squad for the games against Malta and Romania last month, having also qualified 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 Atletico Madrid, 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 previous reports that Atleti’s interest in 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 earlier this month, scoring a widely lauded goal.
