TOP STORY: Man City eyeing move for Leipzig’s Olmo

Manchester City are interested in a move for RB Leipzig forward Dani Olmo, according to Sky Sports Deutschland’s Philipp Hinze.

A clause in the 26-year-old’s contract that allows him to be signed for a fee of €60 million is reported to be active until the middle of July, but the Premier League club are yet to make “concrete contact” over a move for him despite the Spain international being keen on a switch to the Etihad Stadium.

Leipzig are said to be open to entering negotiations should his clause not be activated by the time it expires. Barcelona are one of the clubs also interested in a move for him, but their current financial situation means they could need help to meet any realistic demands.

Olmo contributed to nine goals in 21 Bundesliga games last season, and he has also starred in three matches at the European Championship while representing Spain.
