Dani Olmo would be the perfect long-term Tottenham replacement for Christian Eriksen

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

Tottenham will look to strengthen their squad ahead of their first game of the Premier League campaign on 10th August.

So far, Mauricio Pochettino has added Tanguy Ndombele to his ranks, but he will desperately crave some more recruits.

The Spurs boss could fear that some players will leave this summer; Christian Eriksen, in particular, has been the subject of interest during the transfer window.

Even if Eriksen does stay, it seems unlikely at this stage that he will pen a new deal with the club.

One man who would be a stunning alternative to the 27-year-old is Spanish sensation, Dani Olmo.

The 21-year-old was in fine form for the Spain Under-21 team as they lifted the European Championship trophy last month.


Spanish publication Sport recently reported that Tottenham are prepared to go as high as £36 million to prise Olmo away from Dinamo Zagreb.

At that price, he would represent a genuine steal in today’s market.

Last season he netted 12 goals and registered nine assists for Zagreb, earning his place in the Spain Under-21 outfit.

During the tournament in Italy, he shone. He featured in four of Spain’s five games and scored in three of them.

He operated as a right-winger during the tournament, but at club level, he has played his best football in the hole behind a striker.

Olmo is composed on the ball, can score goals and relishes bringing other players into the game – much like Eriksen.

Given the money being touted around, Olmo would be a class signing for Spurs and he’d be the perfect long-term replacement for Eriksen, should he decide to leave.
