Atletico Madrid keen on winger Dani Olmo

Atletico Madrid are eyeing a move for Dinamo Zagreb winger and Spain Under-21 international Dani Olmo, report Diario AS.

Ajax and Tottenham have previously been linked to the highly-rated player, who the report says would be ‘the icing on the cake’ for Atleti’s summer.

Olmo joined Dinamo as part of the swap deal which saw Alen Halilovic move to Barcelona in 2015 and has since emerged as a star for the Croatian club.

The winger is now 21 and previous reports have claimed the Catalan club have now made contact over the future of the highly-rated player, but his future may lie away from Spain.

Dinamo have previously knocked back interest from Valencia and Milan while Borussia Dortmund and Olympique de Marseille have also been linked to a possible transfer.

Olmo is said by the fresh reports to prefer a move to English or German football as he believes it would fit his style of play.

The winger starred for his nation in the Under-21 Championships victory this summer, netting in the 2-1 final victory over Germany - and he could have a market valuation of €25m.
