In a recent report, Mundo Deportivo mentioned that Barcelona are planning to recruit Red Bull Leipzig playmaker Dani Olmo next summer. It is understood that the Catalan giants are hoping to secure the Spanish attacker’s signature in 2022 after failing to get him on board in the recently concluded summer transfer window.
Olmo’s Excellent Season In German Football
Olmo managed to perform at a high level for Leipzig last season when he established himself as a valuable presence of their attack. The 23-year-old participated in 46 matches for the German club in the previous campaign, netting seven goals and picking up 12 assists in the process across various competitions.
The Spaniard was a consistent performer in the final third as he averaged 2.4 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He even distributed possession well in the opponent’s half after completing 77.6% of his attempted passes in the German first division (stats via whoscored).
Olmo is currently amongst the most feared attackers in German football. Therefore, he would be a decent addition to Barca’s match-day squad if they manage to lure him to the Nou Camp at the end of this campaign.
What Will Olmo Add To Ronald Koeman’s Team?
Olmo can get himself into some promising areas in the attacking third of the pitch and has banged in some important goals for his team. The Spanish playmaker can be a joy to watch when he is dribbling with the ball at full swing and can create some meaningful openings for his teammates inside the opposition penalty box.
The ex-Dinamo Zagreb talent can keep the ball moving in tight spaces and doesn’t mind working his socks off for the benefit of his side. He primarily operates in the number ten position but can also fill in as a winger on either flank if required.
Olmo ticks all the right boxes in terms of what is required to be a success story at a club like Barcelona. He will add a lot of goals and creativity to Ronald Koeman’s frontline and could go on to become a future star at the Nou Camp in the coming seasons. Olmo might even form a dangerous attacking partnership with the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, so Barca would be wise to snap him up next summer.
