Tottenham could seriously regret allowing Dani Olmo to join RB Leipzig

The youngster joined the Bundesliga outfit last week for a relatively small fee.

Tottenham Hotspur may try and strengthen their squad again prior to the deadline on Friday night.

Gedson Fernandes has already been added from Benfica and the midfielder might be joined by more new recruits.

Boss Jose Mourinho will surely be keen to strengthen his squad before the deadline, with a few areas in need of reinforcements.

One man who is now off the radar for Tottenham is Spanish wonderkid Dani Olmo.

The attacking midfielder signed for RB Leipzig last week for a fee in the region of £25 million (Marca).

Sportske had previously reported interest from Tottenham and not signing him might come back to bite Mourinho.

The 21-year-old shone at the European under-21 Championships last summer and has been linked with several clubs since.

Olmo has eight goals and seven assists this season, with two of his strikes coming in the Champions League.

 

The Spaniard can play in a number of attacking roles and he would have represented a decent replacement for Christian Eriksen who seems certain to leave.

Potential

At last summer’s European under-21 Championships he finished his four games with a pass success ratio of 82.4%, according to Who Scored.

In this season’s Champions League, he has averaged just under three shots a game and a pass success of 73.2%.

Tottenham will probably watch Olmo’s progress with Leipzig with intrigue.

If Eriksen does depart it will leave Spurs with a void to fill in the number 10 role and Olmo might have been ideal.

He is young, extremely talented and has shown at Dinamo Zagreb that he is capable of contributing to goals and assists.

Proof of whether Tottenham rue their decision over Olmo will come in the way of performance and Mourinho will hope he doesn’t become one that got away.
