Olmo is basically a product of the famous Barcelona Academy – La Masia. He moved to Zagreb in 2014 and has done well in the past two seasons for them.
The Croatian side now wants a bid in excess of £22m, if they are to sell the attacking midfielder during this transfer window (h/t Daily Mail). Here’s why Spurs shouldn’t hesitate to sign him in the coming days:
Olmo’s versatility and quality would be handy
Predominantly an attacking midfielder, Olmo is capable of playing on either wing or as a central midfielder if required. He has operated in all of those positions for Zagreb during the course of last season and did a good job.
He scored 12 goals and supplied nine assists in 44 appearances in all competitions during the 18/19 campaign. His impact on the team while playing in different positions is something to comprehend as well.
In terms of his attributes, the Spanish U21 international is good at finding key passes, possesses a good turn of pace on the ball, can dribble past people and is pretty accurate at shooting on goal.
He is lightweight when it comes to physicality but that can be worked upon.
If Spurs are looking to sign him, they are doing the right thing. Olmo’s versatility and quality is something that can be used in the coming seasons. Working under Pochettino, the youngster would always have the room to improve.
