European giants Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on RB Leipzig and Spain attacking midfielder Dani Olmo.
The 25-year-old has been at RB Leipzig since signing from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in January 2020 and was a key part of his side’s progression to the Champions League semi-final in his first season.
This season has seen Olmo plagued with injuries, however, with the Spaniard only managing two league goals from 20 appearances. And the attacking midfielder, who also plays as a winger for his country, has alerted European giants such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich according to reputable journalist Fabrizio Romano as his contract comes to an end in the summer of next year.

Dani Olmo set for summer switch to European giants
Olmo is believed to have rejected the offer of a new deal from RB Leipzig, letting the door open for a potential cut-price deal this summer if terms can be agreed.
In particular, Barcelona have held a long-standing interest in the attacking midfielder but with a potential return for legend and ex-club captain Lionel Messi in need of funding this summer, Olmo is no longer seen as affordable nor a priority for the Catalans currently.
