Wolves target Dani Olmo justifies reported £22.5m bid with 'formidable' display

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly launched a bid to bring Spain U21 and Dinamo Zagreb star Dani Olmo to the Premier League.

Just days after reports claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers were in for Dani Olmo, the Spain U21 star has provided a tantalising glimpse of the qualities he would bring to Molineux next season.

According to Sportske Novosti, Wolves have offered £22.5 million for the Dinamo Zagreb forward.

Tottenham, Manchester United, AC Milan and Bayern Munich have also shown an interest on the back of Olmo’s exceptional displays for Spain in their victorious U21 European Championship campaign in Italy this summer.

And Barcelona too are keen to bring a former La Masia graduate back to Catalonia.

But Olmo, at just 21, needs to play. And Wolves are perhaps the most sensible destination for a winger who would fit in perfectly alongside Raul Jimenez or Patrick Cutrone as one of Nuno’s ‘inside forwards’.

And it’s fair to say the Catalan-born youngster has picked up where he left off since returning to Croatia after an extended summer break.

In his first 16 minutes of football in the 2019/20, Olmo scored once and set up another, coming off the bench to inspire Dinamo to a 3-0 Champions League qualifying victory against Saburtalo of Georgia on Wednesday.

Fast, skilful and ability to change a game in an instant, £22.5 million could be a snip.
