Tottenham Hotspur are in ‘pole’ position to sign Dani Olmo from Dinamo Zagreb, per AS.

What’s the word?

The Spain Under-21 international helped his country to glory in the European Championships in Italy and San Marino this summer.

And the report claims that Spurs have entered into negotiations with the winger’s club as they attempt to secure a deal that could cost €30m (£26.9m).

At the age of 21, Olmo has already made over 100 appearances for Dinamo, scoring 26 goals and registering 21 assists.

He has also won 10 caps for Spain’s Under-21 side and, despite rival interest from the likes of Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and AS Roma, Spurs are said to be at the head of the queue.

An intriguing option

Olmo is something of an unknown quantity in England.

His performances at the European Under-21 Championships, where he scored three goals and laid on one assist, have clearly piqued the interest of clubs, though.

And bringing him into Spurs would offer manager Mauricio Pochettino a greater degree of depth across the frontline.

Olmo can play in attacking midfield and on both flanks; he could supplement the likes of Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.

A deal at £26.9m is relatively small change in today’s market and Olmo can make a serious impact in a number of positions; Spurs should get this deal done.
