Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a move for Spanish winger Dani Olmo, report Mucho Deporte.

The Spanish outlet claim Spurs will offer £22.5 million for the star, who impressed at the recent under-21 European Championships.

Olmo scored three times at the tournament, including a goal in the final.

 

Bringing in Olmo would be a clear coup for Spurs. Olmo plays for Dinamo Zagreb after quitting Barcelona's academy as a teenager to try an alternate route.

He has played more than 100 games already for Zagreb and was last season voted the club's player of the year.

Now a big move beckons after his international exploits.

Tottenham signing Olmo will further explain their decision to loan out new signing Jack Clarke.

Spurs swooped on Leeds this week to tie up a deal for the teenage winger. They then immediately loaned him back to the Whites.

The Mail reported earlier this transfer window that Tottenham's intention was always to sign two wingers, but named PSV's Steven Bergwijn as a complement to Clarke. It seems they are pushing ahead for Olmo instead.

Clarke is one for the future, and while Olmo is very much still a diamond in the rough too, he is a lot more ready to step in and contribute right now.
