Ousmane Dembele

With latest reports that Liverpool will no longer have the opportunity of signing Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, the Reds have decided to shift attention to another player formerly playing at the Camp Nou.

Dembele was highly speculated to be on the move to the Anfield until the club and his agent squashed the report stating that the player is happy with the Spanish giants and will not be seeking a move elsewhere.

However, former Barcelona attacker Dani Olmo has been named as the new player the Reds will now move for in the coming winter transfer window.

Dani Olmo is also on the radar of German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund having played with the Barcelona’s La Masia academy for seven years before having a move away from Spain to Croatia where he joined Zagreb.

The move to Zagreb has eventually helped Dani Olmo to develop as he was given the opportunity to start most of the games as a 20-year-old player. It seems it is now time for him to move away from Croatia with Liverpool keen on him.

Dani Olmo scored 9 goals with 6 assists last season to help his side win the Croatian league title and his agent Juanma Lopez already hinted that the young lad has interest from Europe already.
