Wolves opinion: Why Dani Olmo would be a brilliant addition for Nuno Santo

According to Croatian paper Sportske Novosti (h/t The Birmingham Mail), Wolves have submitted a bid in the region of £22.5million for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Dani Olmo.

Olmo, 21, was one of Spain’s top performers as he helped his nation win the European Under-21 Championship earlier this month. He scored three goals during the tournament and was the man of the match for his display in the final as Spain beat Germany to lift the trophy.

That has seen the Spaniard attract interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Tottenham, but it is Wolves who have made a bid for the playmaker, the report adds.

After an excellent seventh-placed finish on their return to the Premier League last season, Wolves were expected to build on with some big-money signings this summer.

However, that hasn’t been the case as the Wanderers have managed only one addition in the form of Jesus Vallejo, who is on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.

Nuno Espirito Santo must beef up his squad with some more players to compete in all competitions, especially as his club’s competitive season has already commenced.

One area he must address is the attack, following the departures of Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro. Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota formed an excellent partnership up front but they need a couple of other players to share the goalscoring burden.

And as Joao Moutinho is ageing, Wolves could do a great job by signing Dani Olmo.

Olmo was in smashing form for Dinamo Zagreb last season, scoring 12 goals and supplying 9 assists. He also won the best player and the best young player awards for his performances in the Croatian top-flight last season.

A skilful attacker, Olmo’s versatility helps him play in the number 10 role or as a winger. The Spaniard is technically excellent on the ball, blessed with the ability to pick a pass in the final third and score goals.

He is a good dribbler and loves to pick up pockets of spaces in behind the opposition players to affect the game.

The 21-year-old would add some extra flair and creativity to the Wolves attack, whilst competing with the likes of Moutinho and Gibbs-White for a place in the starting XI.


Olmo would be a top acquisition if Wolves can beat some of Europe’s top clubs and lure him away to the Molineux before transfer deadline.
