Liverpool have renewed their interest in Dinamo Zagreb star Dani Olmo on the back of his exceptional performances for Spain in their U21 European Championship winning campaign, according to Croatian publication Sportske Novosti.
Svijet claimed nine months ago that Jurgen Klopp’s side were keeping tabs on a little known winger who had found himself in Eastern Europe after failing to make the grade in Barcelona’s fabled La Masia academy.
At the time, supporters might have been scratching their heads. But anyone who watched Olmo in action for Spain over the last month will know exactly why the Champions of Europe have revisited a potential deal for the 21-year-old.
Olmo was one of the tournament’s biggest success stories. He scored three goals, including a gorgeous chip which sealed a 2-1 victory over Germany in the final, while starring in a variety of positions across the frontline.
As you might expect, however, Liverpool are no longer alone.
“Dani can play for any club as he has already showed this at the Euro U21s. When we are talking about Manchester United, they have no such player as Olmo,” his agent, Adyja Baru, told Sportske.
Players tend to evolve into world class stars at Liverpool while they often stagnate at Old Trafford – it remains to be seen where Olmo sees his future.
