Manchester City are ready to pay the €40 million price tag for Dinamo Zagreb winger Dani Olmo, who has contributed to 12 goals for his club so far this season, according to Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti as relayed by Sport Witness.
With the reportedly imminent departure of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich, Manchester City’s search for a replacement continues in European newspapers on Sunday afternoon, with Dinamo Zagreb forward Dani Olmo reportedly on the minds of City officials.
Dinamo Zagreb manager Nenad Bjelica has opened up on the player’s situation, admitting how much of a good opportunity it would be for his star man. Bjelica said: “Of course, Olmo can play at Manchester City and Barcelona. He can play in any big club. I mean, Dinamo is big too, but I’m talking about the biggest and best leagues in the world.”
Bjelica then went on to confirm that Olmo could leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window; “I don’t have any [information], but it’s close to true that Olmo will leave Dinamo this winter.”
So far this season, Olmo has contributed to 13 goals in 18 appearances for club and country, and recently earned his first call-up to the Spain side – an appearance that resulted in his first goal to mark the occasion. Manchester City will get another opportunity to monitor the winger, as they take on Zagreb in the Champions League in December.
