Barcelona target Dani Olmo receives final RB Leipzig contract offer

Barcelona target Dani Olmo receives final RB Leipzig contract offer

RB Leipzig have tabled a final contract offer to versatile forward Dani Olmo amid interest from clubs abroad, according to Florian Plettenberg.

The 24-year-old has a contract with the Bundesliga club until 2024, but they want to tie him down to a new deal.

Leipzig have reportedly tabled an offer that will make Olmo the highest-paid player in the squad but are yet to receive a response from his camp.

If their offer is knocked back, Leipzig will look to offload Olmo this summer to avoid losing him for free at the end of next season.

The Germans have slapped a €30 million price tag on their prized asset, which will only become active if the player refuses to commit his long-term future to the club.

Olmo has been phenomenal for Leipzig since moving to the Red Bull Arena from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2020, racking up 20 goals and 24 assists in 117 games.

The versatile forward has racked up ten goal contributions in 25 appearances across all competitions this term with his four goals and six assists.

Olmo’s two goals and four assists in the Bundesliga have come in handy for Marco Rose’s side, who are chasing a place in Europe’s most prestigious tournament.

The Red Bull club currently sit in fifth place, but just two points separate them from fourth-placed SC Freiburg, and they stand a good chance of earning a place in the top four with five games left to play.

Olmo is not short on suitors and has been linked with a move back to his homeland, with Catalan giants Barcelona keen on securing his services.

His low price tag also bodes well for the Blaugranas, who are financially handicapped but are forging ahead with their summer recruitment plans regardless.

Barca are looking to reinforce their squad, and Olmo’s ability to feature anywhere across the front line or in midfield has piqued their interest.

The final decision rests with the player amid reports several clubs in the Premier League could also swoop in for his signature should he turn down the new deal.
