Premier League duo Spurs and Wolverhampton Wanderers were both reportedly keen to sign Dinamo Zagreb's Spain U21 star Dani Olmo.

Reported Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers target Dani Olmo is far from happy after being forced to stay at Dinamo Zagreb for another season, as reported by Sportske Novosti.

The young forward’s stock has never been higher. Olmo shot to fame with three goals in five games as Spain won the U21 European Championships in Italy this summer, including a sublime chip in the final victory over Germany.

 

The versatile attacker has taken that form back to Croatia at the start of 2019/20 season too, scoring and assisting eight goals in just six games for Dinamo Zagreb. Suddenly, Barcelona will be wondering why on earth they let Olmo leave their famous La Masia academy five years ago.

According to Sportske Novosti, Wolves made a £22.5 million bid for the 21-year-old with Tottenham also firm admirers of a prolific attacker capable of playing anywhere across the frontline (Sport).

The Croatian champions were reluctant to sell, however, and this stance has not gone down well with their star man.

“I have nothing to hide. I wanted to leave Dinamo, I wanted to move on and join a strong club in the big leagues. I thought this summer was the best time to leave,” he said.

“I think (the asking price) was too high. Realistically, it’s difficult for a player in the Croatian league to go for this price.”

Olmo has certainly picked up where he left off since returning from international duty and don’t be surprised if Tottenham and Wolves renew their interest in the New Year with the one-time Camp Nou starlet getting better by the week.
