Liverpool could pull off summer masterstroke with signing of Dani Olmo

The Spain Under-21 international looks set to leave Dinamo Zagreb this summer.

Liverpool finished 2018/19 with a flourish. Jordan Henderson hoisted Champions League crown number six above his head for the Reds; making amends for narrowly missing out on the Premier League title.

Despite success on the continent, it is the domestic crown that Liverpool so desperately crave. When 2019/20 gets underway you can bet your bottom dollar that Jurgen Klopp will have one ambition in his sights for the campaign.

It remains to be seen what activity Liverpool will take part in during the transfer window.

Klopp boasts a tremendous squad and after achieving 97 points in the league, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for him to go with what he has.

If any players do arrive to bolster the first-team ranks, it seems likely to be quality over quantity for the Reds boss.

One area that Liverpool may look to strengthen is in the middle of the park.

 

Although Klopp has options in that area, most midfielders boast similar attributes. Fabinho, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson and James Milner all do similar jobs.

A more forward-thinking, goalscoring option might be useful and Spain Under-21 hero Dani Olmo might be a useful addition to the Liverpool ranks.

Pastures new

According to Spanish publication AS, the 21-year-old will leave Dinamo Zagreb this summer and he keen to move to England.

The Croatian giants want around £27 million for the attacking midfielder, which seems a snip in today’s inflated market.

Football London has refuted claims that Tottenham are interested in Olmo and that should entice Liverpool into making a move.

Olmo was in stunning form during the recent European Under-21 Championships which Spain won. He netted three goals during the tournament including strikes in the semi-final and final.

The youngster can also play on the left-wing and given his price and potential he could prove to be a shrewd signing for Liverpool.
