What originally seemed a half guess has now blossomed into a story spreading across the Italian media: Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in Dani Olmo.
This all comes as part of the reports that Milan are keen on the Spaniard, currently contracted to Dinamo Zagreb, and both Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport believe Wolves are competition for the Serie A side.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side aren’t the main danger, as that appears to be RB Leipzig, whose offer for the playmaker is ‘valid for January’, according to Gazzetta, who see the Bundesliga leaders and Wolverhampton as the ‘most accredited’ sides in the race.
Over at Corriere, it’s believed a ‘series of offers’ have already arrived for Olmo, with the German club’s ‘the most interesting’, while Barcelona have stopped at €16m and Wolves are ‘in the background’.
Dinamo are reportedly looking for around €25m for the 21-year-old, which Milan don’t plan on paying now, but will wait a few weeks before coming forward, providing the attacking midfielder is still in Zagreb.
It seems Leipzig are the only ones who plan on making a serious move for January, and it remains to be seen if the 1.HNL side are willing to part ways with their star player midway through the campaign.
As for Wolves, they seem to be hovering, perhaps keeping an eye on things for the summer rather than the current transfer window.
